Whilst being unable to support the Northern Devon Foodbank with weekly volunteering during the pandemic we have been able to support in other ways ensuring the foodbank has a steady supply of food.
This includes the following: A monthly donation from our store budget. Most months donating somewhere between £150-£200 of food and essentials. I have been keeping in touch with the charity and donating items that they were short of. Every Tuesday the Foodbank collects food from our Fight Hunger Create Change collection trolley from the front of the store. Customers have been extremely generous. Every week the Foodbank receives food from our store FareShare donation of surplus food too.
