I was happy to spend a few hours chatting to our customers about Asda's Fight Hunger Create Change campaign and the support we give to Newcastle West End Foodbank.
The food bank has been open all through the pandemic and the need for parcels has increased by 202%. Their hard-working volunteers have also successfully completed home deliveries to those who've been shielding or isolating. They introduced extreme social distancing and PPE and now currently operate with 45 volunteers, which is the maximum allowed for safety.
Thank you to all the customers who've placed donations in our store's collection trolley – together we're making a real difference to people in our local area 💚
