Last week, Franklins donated a mixed pallet of food, with a value of £2,000 to MK Food Bank through a partnership with His Church Charity. MK Food Bank have recently teamed up with MK Council to launch Food Bank Xtra in order to meet the increase in demand caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
“We are so grateful to Franklins and His Church for the fabulous donation of much need food delivered last week. MK Food Bank has seen an unprecedented increase in demand for its emergency food parcels over the last year – in 2020 we helped over 2,500 more households than in the previous year, giving out 27,500 parcels altogether. And it’s thanks to incredible donations from the community that we’re able to carry on helping everyone who needs us. On behalf of everyone here, a huge thank you to for your generosity and community spirit.” – Louisa Hobbs, Operations Manager at MK Food Bank.
Millie Coletta, Marketing Assistant at Franklins Solicitors said “We are really pleased to have been able to provide a mixed pallet of food to the MK food Bank to help families in the local area this Easter. The pandemic, along with other economic difficulties, have caused a significant increase in the amount of people using food banks and needing this extra support. MK Food Bank are always on hand to help many through these difficult times and we are grateful for their commitment and to be able to contribute to their ongoing work in Milton Keynes. We hope that our donation will go a long way to providing much needed meals for families and individuals.”
Franklins are delighted to have been able to help a number of individuals and families through local charities in the community this Easter.
