Allwell's Food Bank Nominated for £500 Grant
Posted on 16th September 2021 at 13:25
We received some exciting news today. Our food bank here at Allwell Care Company has very kindly been nominated by Sainsbury's Warren Heath for a 'Helping Everyone Eat Better' £500 grant, funded by Neighbourly.
COVID-19 has not only put a lot of pressure on all care services, but also people in the community who have been furloughed, lost their jobs, or lost support in other ways and found themselves needing to use food banks. Obviously, this has put a lot of pressure on our food bank too, especially as we launched it in response to the pandemic so it was new to us too. Whilst the pressure has eased off a bit more recently, there's still a demand, particularly as we approach Christmas.
If we're successful, the £500 grant will make a huge difference in supporting our food bank's supply and could assist with some festive treats too, which we think everyone should have the right to.
So, thank you to Sainsbury's Warren Heath and fingers crossed!
