Food Bank Fund
Donations to our Food Bank Fund are to help support our partner food banks over the festive period and into the new year are now closed, check back here later to find out how much you helped us to raise!
You can still help the more vulnerable in your local community by donating food and essentials to food banks by dropping it off at your local Midcounties Food store!
Why are we supporting food banks?
Food poverty in the UK has been on the rise for a number of years, with over 2000 food banks now supporting the most vulnerable in communities up and down the country. 2020 has been a particularly tough year for many people in the UK and has seen a sharp rise in demand for food banks.
We have over 50 food bank partners across our trading areas, helping to support the most vulnerable in our local communities through funding and collection boxes in our food stores.
How you can help...
Provide some essentials
It's not just money that can help support your local food bank, that's why we have food bank collection boxes in all of our food stores.
Whether you have some spare tins in the cupboard or want to pick up a few extra items when you shop with us, simply drop them in the collection box and they'll go a long way to helping the most vulnerable in your area. If you can't find the collection box in your local store, just ask one of our colleagues who will be happy to point you in the right direction.
Information for our food bank partners
If you're one of our food bank partners, you don't need to apply for funding, our community team will be in touch with you to arrange access to these funds.
