The Trussell Trust runs the largest network of food banks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis. Fourteen million people live below the poverty line and in the last year 1,9 million three-day emergency food supplies were distributed to people in crisis.
Yesterday we were extremely grateful to Bedford-based construction contractor SDC for donating a new van to Bedford Foodbank.
Our old Foodbank van, which is used to collect and deliver donations, is no longer fit for purpose due to general wear and tear. SDC heard of the challenges the foodbank would face without transport and offered to replace the van, to ensure the charity can continue its inspirational work.
Please see the attached news story for more details. We are so grateful to SDC for supporting us with a new van during the Covid-19 crisis, allowing us to continue to distribute 3-day emergency food parcels to those in need in Bedford. Many thanks from the Foodbank team.
