FOODBANK SUPPORTS OVER 10,000 PEOPLE THIS YEAR!

FOODBANK SUPPORTS OVER 10,000 PEOPLE THIS YEAR!

Since January 2021, Burnley FC in the Community Kitchen has provided enough food to feed over 10,000 people!

In what has been a difficult last 18 months for everyone, the Burnley FC in the Community Kitchen foodbank have faced unprecedented demand.

Together, we have risen to the challenge to ensure nobody in our community goes hungry and this wouldn’t be possible without the support of our wonderful staff, volunteers and the general public who have been generous in their monetary donations and food items.

Since 4 January 2021, almost 3,000 food parcels have been distributed from our facility, based in Charter Walk Shopping Centre. These have directly fed 7,235 people, of which 2,738 of these were children.

Our work is not only done through food parcels, our Early Kick-Off breakfast clubs also provide 2,000 children a week with a healthy, nutritious start to the day!

Alongside this, we have also indirectly fed an additional 2,887 people through supporting other charities and foodbanks.

The hard work doesn’t stop there, as we’ve been supporting your furry friends in need too! We have provided pet food in 731 of our parcels for both cats and dogs.

Demand is still high, and we still need your support. You can continue to back us and allow us to help people in a number of ways.
