We want to keep helping families and children who have been really affected by food poverty. We offer a delivery service meaning we can’t get to those families who haven’t got access to a food bank.
We have seen the impact that our service has had on the communities we have worked with over the last four months, we have issued 104 food bank vouchers to families which in total has supported 378 people, this total includes 206 adults and 172 children.
We are already aware of the impact the service has had on our families during the last four months and we only see that further support is needed. The feedback we have received from services users has been so immense. We wish to share this with you:
"You have helped my myself and my partner and children during this very difficult time and I am overwhelmed by the help you have given to out of your way to deliver food whilst I am on low money and partner is out of work during this pandemic. A big thumbs up to you all"
"thank you so so so much. You have no idea how much you've helped us"
"i'm in tears, completely overwhelmed. can't thank you all enough. As soon as i get my backdated payments from the government i want to make a donation to the food bank please. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. me and the children are thrilled."
The money will be used to make sure our volunteers can continue to deliver parcels, help with purchasing food when donations are less forthcoming and help with the running of our food bank and support all the hard work that goes into making sure families get the food that is really needed.
