In the run-up to Christmas this year we are once again supporting the Nourish Community Foodbank ’12 Days of Christmas’ campaign. Starting on 1 December, we are inviting members of our team to donate an essential food bag item each day into a box in the office. As an alternative, making a £3 donation is enough to buy someone in need a food bag meal over the Christmas period.
Last year, Nourish Community Foodbank had its busiest Christmas period ever and during the Christmas week the team delivered 129 emergency food parcels, 94 for families and 35 for individuals in crisis. This is more than 4,900 meals. Suggested items for the collection include tinned vegetables, rice, sauces for rice, tinned tomatoes, noodles, tinned fish, pasta sauce, tinned fruit, toilet roll, tinned spaghetti, cup-a-soup and a Christmas treat.
