Middlesbrough Foodbank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. The foodbank provides three days’ of nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to the foodbank in a crisis. With Yodel’s generous donation, Middlesbrough Foodbank can continue this important work.
David Timney, customer delivery depot manager at Yodel, said: “Gathering all the donations was a team effort, designed to support those in need in the wider community of Middlesbrough. It has been rewarding to see all the colleagues getting involved in our appeal and the response has been amazing. We hope that our efforts will make a difference to the local community, and we look forward to working with the foodbank again in the future.”
Samantha Stapley, Director of Operations at the Trussell Trust, said: “Food banks work hard to provide not only essential food, but also little extras that offer hope at a time when people need it most. This can only be done with the support of people and businesses in local communities, so we’re very grateful for support for food banks like this. It will make a huge difference – thank you.”
