Could YOU be a Neighbourhood Champion?May 22nd, 2020
Since North Bristol Food Bank launched in 2012 it has been providing three-day emergency food supplies to local people in crisis. Currently with their food bank outlets closed due to the Corona Virus, the charity is operating a delivery service.
And as a direct response to a staggering 272% increase in use of the North Bristol Food Bank in April 2020 compared to 2019, they have launched their new campaign to recruit and mobilise local volunteer Neighbourhood Champions. These champs will provide a friendly face, a community link, organising safe food collections and deliveries in order to tackle soaring local food poverty.
North Bristol Food Bank would love to hear from you if you live in the areas below.
Perhaps you are already helping your neighbours, but would like to have support in doing so, or connect with others doing similar initiatives in their neighbourhoods? The food bank can help facilitate this and will provide you with a neighbourhood pack which contains helpful information including an updated shopping list, ways to donate, a newsletter with key food bank updates, a letter you can use to post to your neighbours and more.
