Hull Foodbank collection

Hull Foodbank is at the Co-op in Cottingham collecting all kinds of non-perishable food from the public to feed local people in crisis.Supermarket collections are one of the main ways the Foodbank is stocked and with the Foodbank busier than ever Hull Foodbank is asking people to give generously.

Hull's Foodbank aims to help people through short term crisis by providing emergency food parcels. Hull Foodbank centre also provides support and signposting to help combat the long term problem.

Volunteers will be at Co-op in Cottingham from 9am-1pm.

Since opening in November, we have seen over 400 people who need food parcels. This is due to a variety of different reasons; redundancy, large utility bills, bereavement and benefit delays." says Sarah Sidwell, Hull Foodbank manager. "The current economic climate means more and more people are struggling to put food on the table, so we really need local citizens to give what they can to help. This is a great opportunity to help those in need."
