The Trussell Trust runs the largest network of food banks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis. Fourteen million people live below the poverty line and in the last year 2,5 million three-day emergency food supplies were distributed to people in crisis.
Local Paralympic Wheelchair Rugby Legend joins our Carrier Bag Appeal
20th January 2021
Our call for strong carrier bags was answered this week by local motivational speaker and Paralympic Wheelchair Rugby Legend, Andy Barrow. He joined us in tackling food poverty by donating a large quantity of bags that are absolutely vital for every single food parcel we provide
Andy told us “my donation was a tiny act compared to the amazing work that the team at Greenwich Foodbank does day in, day out. There has never been a more important time than now to ensure that everyone has enough to eat, so a huge thank you to everyone playing their part.
During lockdown, I’ve been focussing on the work I do with train operating company, Southeastern, to ensure our service is accessible to all. I’ve also been making sure that I get out to exercise regularly in the local park as it’s great for my mental health as well as being a good workout!”
A big #thankyou to Andy and everyone who has so generously donated to our appeal so far. #greenwichfoodbank # #COVID#trusselltrust#endfoodpoverty
