This month we launch our Holiday Hunger campaign for summer 2019.
We know that in the school holidays families need our help more than usual. That’s because school holidays bring their own financial pressures such as extra cooking, entertaining children and childcare expenses.
This means that some families need to use our Foodbank so we have decided this year to repeat the project we began last year. This is to give every family both our standard food parcel when they come to see us, and also some fresh food so that they can make packed lunches for their children.
We can’t store fresh food at the Foodbank so we will be going out to buy this food each day that we are open during the summer holidays. As such we are fundraising to raise extra money to buy fresh milk, bread, cheese or ham, yogurts, fruit and vegetables to put into food parcels for families with children in them.
If you would like to support our work this summer you can donate £5 to us by texting “holidayhunger5” to 70085 and we will receive your donation instantly so that we can make life a little bit easier for those families who are really struggling this summer.
As ever, thank you so much for your support.
