Today I spent several hours helping to make people aware of the Trussell Trust, and hand out leaflets encouraging those who are able to, to donate a little something food wise.
People aren’t always aware that the help is there, or that donations are needed to help those who are struggling at the moment. With Trussell Trust foodbanks you do need to be signposted there, and given a bit of paper to show you’re eligible, this can be done by various places.
Once you have this you can I believe get help from them, and will get food to last you a few days. I will add a link to their website to help raise awareness, and so you can find out more information about them.
I would like to say how incredibly generous people are, and thank everyone who has donated in the past, or plans to do so in the future.
Some supermarkets have prepacked paper bags filled with items that your local foodbank is in need of, so if you are in a hurry, or are unsure what to get, pick one up and pay for it (the price will be on the bag) at the till along with your own shopping, and the supermarket will make sure the bag gets passed on to the foodbank for you.
