February marked the one-year anniversary of Asda’s Fight Hunger, Create Change programme and what a year it’s been!
Over £2 million has been granted to 88 food banks in The Trussell Trust network, and over 1 million meals have been donated by customers to local food banks through in-store collections.
As Sunderland foodbank, we’ve benefitted by having the community champion from Asda Seaham – Terry Gee – volunteer with us weekly and organise regular collections at the supermarket. We’ve also had Asda staff raise over £500 and customers have donated 4.5 tonnes of food at Asda Seaham and Asda Grangetown.
A big thank you to Asda, Asda staff and customers for the continued support.
