ASDA is donating £5 MILLION Pounds To Support Food Charities FareShare & The Trussell Trust!

“We’re donating £5 million to food charities FareShare and the Trussell Trust to help them support the most vulnerable people in our communities during the coronavirus outbreak.

The donation means they can provide meals to families in poverty impacted by coronavirus, as well as giving the 3,000 charities they in turn support the ability to access free food over the next three months as they fight to tackle the local impact of the virus. We’re also investing in the logistics and support services that will allow FareShare and the Trussell Trust to support families through the crisis, including funding for telephone and online referrals, and food parcel delivering systems for people unable to afford food, as well as supporting the recruitment of 20,000 volunteers for food banks in the Trussell Trust network. “
