There is a growing network of food banks across Gloucestershire, Worcestershire & Herefordshire who work with local organisations, to provide cans and other provisions to families and individuals who are in difficult circumstances.
'Together we CAN' make a difference. This Friday at 7.45pm, Gloucester Rugby host Worcester Warriors at Kingsholm and we need YOU to come along and bring a can of food to donate to the three counties food banks.
Cans of food in all shapes and sizes will be gratefully received, but please be mindful that items with short use by dates may not be distributed in time. Items desperately needed include canned vegetables, canned fish, canned meat and canned puddings. Packets of Pasta and Rice would also be gratefully received.
You too could run the initiative in your workplace, school or social club. Simply ask people to donate a can of food on Friday as part of your own 'Together we CAN' day. Contact your local food bank for details of how to donate. Contact details can be found at www.allpay.net/togetherwecan.
One of the organisations showing their support is allpay, the UK's leading bill payments specialist, based in Hereford. allpay will be holding a 'Together we CAN' day on Friday and inviting every one of their 250 staff to donate a can for the local food bank in Herefordshire.
'Together we CAN' make a difference to people who, without the help of their local food bank, may be struggling to survive.
