The move was part of Asda’s partnership with Fight Hunger Crate Change, FairShare and Trussel Trust.
Last year, the Trussell Trust Network’s food banks provided 2.5 million emergency food parcels, of which about one million were for children.
Katherine McCallin, community champion at the retailer’s Redlands store, said: “We can’t honestly thank the local community for being incredibly generous with their food bank donations to the people in our community. Leads to those who need our help and support.
“It’s amazing to see such a shared community spirit that so many of us get together where we can help.”
“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of Asda customers and are incredibly grateful for their help during the food drive,” said Zoo Pete, Senior Food Partnership Manager, Trussell Trust.
“Thanks to their generous donations, our network’s food banks continue to provide emergency food and additional assistance to those who cannot afford it. ASDA’s support has helped us achieve our goal of a hunger-free future.” Allowed to work together.
Over the past 3 years, Asda has donated £ 25 million to its charitable partners, providing food banks in the Trussell Trust network to provide services such as finance 5.7 million finance and loan advice.
