PLEASE NOTE WE CANNOT ACCEPT DONATIONS OF FRESH/PERISHABLE FOODS
The report’s authors went so far as to state:
We found no evidence to support the idea that increased food aid provision is driving demand.
All available evidence, both in the UK and internationally, points in the opposite direction. Put simply, there is more need, and informal food aid providers are trying to help.
But you don’t need a Government report to work this one out. At every stage of a Luton Foodbank client’s journey, he or she is offered professional support and encouraged to take the right steps to remedy their situation. Significantly, most foodbanks—including Luton Foodbank—operate a policy limiting the number of uses someone can make of their service. Any so-called “dependency” would have a maximum duration of about two weeks. Since 87% of our users are back on their feet after only one or two visits, the pundits clearly didn’t do their homework.
We need both, so it’s up to you! Non-perishable food items chosen from our food list have the wonderful quality of variety, which can really mean a lot to the person who ends up with it. Donations of money help us to plug the gaps if a particular food type is in short supply.
We often need help in our warehouse (High Town area), help with driving, and help with supermarket collections. Details of days/times can be found by following the link below. You must be over 18 years old to volunteer, but younger people may wish to help by organising a food collection at school, or doing a sponsored challenge like this.
