Donating to Loveworks Food Banks

Thank you to everyone who has donated food or cash to us over the past few weeks. It is helping us meet the demands of the food banks and also showing the massive support we have from the local community, in particular the new Covid Mutual Aid groups who are co-ordinating a staggering amount of donations.

During the Covid-19 crisis we are working very closely with RBBC and other local food banks, sharing information and resources. Donations are, and will continue to be, essential to allow us to continue supporting a growing number of people in need over the next few months and years.
