Supporting Worcester Foodbank this winter
19 December 2023
As the winter chill sets in, Worcester Foodbank, operated by The Trussell Trust, gears up for what promises to be its busiest season ever. The urgency of the situation is underscored by the stark call to action on the charity’s website: “This will be the busiest winter ever for food banks. Please donate now. Give now to support people facing hunger this Christmas. End Impossible Decisions. Make a Single Donation. Help to Fight Poverty.” The message is clear – the need is greater than ever, and every contribution counts.
The Trussell Trust, a UK-based charity committed to eradicating hunger and poverty, oversees a network of food banks across the country, including the Worcester Foodbank. Their mission is to provide emergency food and support to people in crisis, while also working towards a future where everyone can afford essentials.
In the spirit of giving, local businesses are stepping up to support Worcester Foodbank. Hazelton Mountford has again demonstrated their commitment to the community by making a £250 donation this Christmas.
Charlotte Reese, Referencing Administrator, expresses the importance of community support, stating: “In times of increasing need, it is crucial for businesses to rally behind organisations like Worcester Foodbank. Our donation aims to make a positive difference in the lives of those struggling, especially during the holiday season when the warmth of community support is needed most.”
Worcester Foodbank operates on the principle of providing more than just food; it offers a lifeline to individuals and families facing financial hardship. The Trussell Trust’s commitment to ending hunger aligns with the values of Hazelton Mountford and other local businesses, creating a collaborative effort to build a stronger, more resilient community.
