FareShare South West issue fresh appeal for donations to FoodStock projectPosted on: 05 Jan 2021
The charity are organising thousands of food parcels for people in need.
The Bristol-based South West arm of national charity FareShare have issued a new call for donations to FoodStock, an initiative launched in late 2020 to ensure no-one across the South West goes hungry this winter.
Aiming to build a stockpile and redistribute enough food for a million meals, the charity have been hard at work on a project that could support critically vulnerable people across the regon until, and potentially beyond, February 2021.
Despite donations enabling them to organise thousands of food parcels to date, the FareShare team are still relying on the generosity of the public to continue working on FoodStock as they continue to provide for a growing number of people affected by the coronavirus crisis.
For more information, or to find out how you can make a donation, head to their website.
Our food parcels have reached thousands ahead of & during the festive period. Sadly, the need for these will continue well into the new year. If you can, consider donating to #FoodStock2020 so we can be the safety net for our region this winter.https://t.co/omhwFyNUO2 pic.twitter.com/TwGXT6OlWZ— FareShare South West (@FareShareSW) December 31, 2020
FareShare have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic to prepare and distribute food across the South West region, supporting frontline workers, vulnerable people and their families.
As we enter a third nationwide lockdown and COVID-19 continue to impact communities across the UK, the FareShare network is building a huge stockpile of food to ensure no-one goes hungry through the winter.
Operating out of their BS2 HQ, the charity's South West branch aim to collect and redistribute food for over 1 million meals in just four months, from November 2020 to February 2021.
A donation of just £5 could fund a food parcel for a whole family, while £10 could provide for for 40 meals for someone in need this winter. £25 could cover the costs of delivering food for 100 children's meals.
