We are pleased to announce our charity partnership with the Trussell Trust, an organisation that aims to end hunger and poverty in the UK. The Trussell Trust supports more than 1,200 food banks across the UK, including the Normanton food bank , to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people in need, as well as providing support to help people resolve the challenges they face. In 2018-19, food banks in the Trussell Trust’s network provided 1.6 million emergency food parcels to people in crisis. More than 550,000 of these went to children.
Please Drop of your donations in the Box located outside Poundland in Prospect Centre.
Alex Christian, Head of Corporate Partnerships at the Trussell Trust said: “We are thrilled to have NewRiver as our new corporate partner. We have seen a record demand in food bank use in the last year, with more and more people struggling to afford the basics. This isn’t right.
A typical food parcel includes:
Tinned tomatoes/ pasta sauce
Lentils, beans and pulses
Many food banks also provide essential non-food items such as toiletries and hygiene products.
