MORRISONS Foundation has teamed up with The Trussell Trust to support food banks across the country this festive season.

Launched today, November 28, and running right up to Boxing Day, the Morrisons Foundation Christmas Appeal will offer online customers the opportunity to add a donation of £1, £3, £5 or £10 to their shop. Every pound raised will then be matched by the Foundation and donated to the Trussell Trust which will use the funds to provide food and support to families in hardship in communities across Bradford and all around the UK.

Food banks across the Trussell Trust network are expecting to provide more than one million emergency food parcels between December 2023 and February 2024 – the most parcels ever provided across this period. This equates to an average of one food parcel every eight seconds (11,500 a day) and 7,000 people seeking support each day.

Emma Revie, CEO of the Trussell Trust, said: “We don’t want to spend every winter saying things at food banks are getting worse, but they are. Food banks are not the answer in the long term, but while we continue to fight for the change that could mean they can be closed for good, your local food bank urgently needs your support.

“Every year we are seeing more and more people needing food banks, and that is just not right. “Our food banks desperately need donations of food for emergency parcels and money to meet the shortfall in donations they are currently experiencing, which is why we are thrilled that Morrisons customers and the Foundation will be supporting the Trussell Trust again this year.”

David Scott, Morrisons Foundation Trustee said, “We are delighted to once again be teaming up with the Trussell Trust for our Christmas appeal. By match funding the generous donations of Morrisons online customers we hope to make a difference to people in hardship this winter."

The Trussell Trust operates a number of food banks in the Bradford area including one in Otley Street, Skipton, from St Andrew's Church.
