Owners of a supermarket that supplies essential food to the vulnerable and deprived in Foleshill in Coventry had a break-in overnight.
Staff arrived this morning to discover that someone had broken in and taken food, the safe, wifi router and PPE Equipment. They believe the damage and cost of items is approximately £2,000.
The community centre is currently being used as a social supermarket, supplying food during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Police are now appealing for help to trace the people responsible.
Sergeant Asa Morris from the Foleshill neighbourhood team said: "This is a horrible crime, taking food from members of our community that needed it most.
“We are appealing for anyone who knows anything about this burglary to contact us. There will be people in the community who suspect who’s involved. These offenders don’t deserve any protection. I would ask anyone with information to contact us so we can take action.”
Helen Needham, Operations Manager at Feeding Coventry said: "We're just really shocked and devastated because we've been working around the clock to try and serve the local community at this difficult time."
