Property industry charity, Agents Giving, is celebrating its continued support of The Trussell Trust and local food bank centres with a nationwide campaign on Agents Giving Day, Thursday 16th June.
This year supported by The Guild of Property Professionals and Relocation Agent Network. The aim is to encourage support of all local food banks by donating food parcels as more people than ever are facing extreme food poverty.
You can help by preparing a simple food parcel of items to donate to your local food bank to help with the supplies they so desperately need. Please check with your food bank the items they are in most need of, collect them up and make the donation.
Food banks in the Trussell Trust network provided more than 2.1 million food parcels to people across the UK in the past year. This is the first-time food banks in the Trussell Trust’s network have provided more than 2 million parcels, outside of 2020/21, at the height of the pandemic. More than 830,000 parcels were provided for children, representing a 15% increase from 2019/20, and this is set to get worse as the cost-of-living crisis continues.
Your office can collect food donations from your wider community, you can also contribute by purchasing and donating items via your local supermarket collection bin, just a couple of items will help make a big difference to the ongoing need for emergency food in local communities, especially during these difficult times.
Last year Agents Giving Day saw thousands of food items collected and this year we hope to beat that figure.
David Newnes, Agents Giving Chairman, comments: “We are encouraging everyone to support their local food banks this Agents Giving Day. By simply collecting up and donating a food parcel it can help make such a difference to those living and going hungry in our local communities”.
