We've donated goods worth £772.47 to Boston and Sutterton Food Bank as part of our Fight Hunger Create Change food drive which calls on generous customers to help people struggling with food essentials across the country.
The donation of food, drink and toiletries was based on a shopping list of items provided by the group of products that are regularly in short supply. It was funded by an Asda Foundation Supporting Communities grant. As the impact of the pandemic continues to be felt in communities across the UK, families are struggling to access basic items like food and hygiene products. Our stores have permanent collection points year-round, but over the next month our aim is to boost the number of donations as we support our charity partners managing an increased need for emergency food parcels. I’m always overwhelmed by the generosity of our customers and colleagues, I wanted to thank them for continuing to support our Fight Hunger Create Change programme. It’s making a real difference to the families in their local communities, both in terms of providing much needed emergency support as well as longer term help through our funding of trained advisors on the ground helping people out of the situation they find themselves in.
