24th November 2016

From the 1st to 3rd December, we’re hosting a food collection with Tesco as part of the ninth Neighbourhood Food Collection. You can donate food locally at Tesco Metro, Stamford – all food donated there will go straight to Stamford 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 made to our foodbank 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 Trussell Trust foodbanks provide important support beyond food, to tackle the root causes of poverty.
We are thrilled that the UK’s largest supermarket shares our vision that no one should go hungry, and is working with us to empower local communities and fight poverty.
Will you join us to help stop UK hunger?
