From the 1st to 3rd December, our friends at Kingston Park Tesco will be hosting a food collection for West End Foodbank.
Christmas can be a difficult time for individuals and families who are already managing on extremely tight budgets. The increased winter fuel bills, and the pressure of choosing between heating and eating, will sadly push many families into food crisis.
Donations are used to provide three-days of nutritionally balanced, emergency food to people in crisis that have been referred by frontline professional agencies such as Citizens Advice or children’s centres.
Whilst at the foodbank, clients will be welcomed, listened to and signposted to services that can provide support with the underlying causes of their crisis, helping to break the cycle of poverty.
Tesco top up customer donations by making a 20% financial contribution, so by getting involved you will not only help provide vital food for UK people experiencing crisis, but funds will help us provide important support beyond food, to tackle the root causes of poverty.
