This Christmas, we supported those that needed it most by donating as much food as possible to the Coventry Foodbank, run by The Trussell Trust. With Christmas fast-approaching we completed a food drive, and handed over all the tasty treats and winter warming foods that we could gather, to our local food bank at St Francis of Assisi.
This year food banks had their busiest August and September on record, and right now an emergency food bank parcel is being given out every 13 seconds. The cost of living crisis has had a huge impact on a lot of people and has put things into perspective for many individuals, including ourselves, which is why we chose to donate the money we’d usually spend on client gifts, to help support the Coventry Foodbank instead, giving back to those that need it most during the festive season.
The Trussell Trust works with a network of food banks across the UK and are continuously fighting to help keep food banks going this winter with an emergency fund appeal to help meet the increased need.
Everyone in the studio contributed to the food drive, with great cupboard finds and festive supermarket shopping. Our donations helped food banks that are having to supply food, on a scale they’ve not seen before, and feed families during Christmas.
