The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the foodbank at Burnley FC in the Community Foodbank facing unprecedented demand, with the facility needing support more now than ever before.
With this recent surge, since the turn of the year we have now distributed over 7,000 parcels, providing enough food for over 16,000 people, 6,000 of those which were children.
We recently estimated that the monetary value of a weekly, single person parcel would cost £22.13 if purchased at a national supermarket. If this amount of food was provided for each person feed just via our parcels, we will have distributed nearly £345,000 worth of stock.
To help support the foodbank you can now make a regular donation to the facility and become a Foodbank Friend, helping to provide food parcels to thousands of local people.
Regular donations to the foodbank mean that we can ensure that we have a good stock of essential items to include in food parcels and it will help us to plan to make sure that nobody has to go hungry.
