27th Feb 2015, was a proud day for us at 10ways and also for you – we’re pleased to announce we’ve become corporate sponsors for our MK food bank, meaning at least 1,200 families will not go hungry this year – so thank you on behalf of them and thank you from everyone here.
If you have a local food bank then we urge you to consider donating any surplus food, drinks, snacks etc to them especially if you’ve got surplus from a 10ways deal.
For those wondering only people who have been referred by an official agency (e.g. Doctor, Housing Office, Job Centre, Citizens Advice Bureau etc) can claim a food parcel with a maximum of 5 parcels per year. It’s purely an emergency box, not designed to have relied on long term but to get them out of trouble for 3-5 days.
To find your local food bank it’s probably best to simply google ‘your town/city name + food bank’ as there are so many different organisations that run them.
Thanks again, it really does mean a lot to us here & everyone involved at The Food Bank MK
In 2018 we partnered with Tesla Owners UK & The Christian Blandford Fund to donate 13 RadioFlyer toy Tesla cars to children’s hospices and hospitals across the UK, in 2019 we plan to repeat this.
