Foresters Financial team outside Norwich foodbank warehouseForesters Financial firm fund £2000 food shop for Norwich foodbank  

Foresters Financial has donated a £2,000 food shop to Norwich foodbank plus a team of volunteers to help sort the shopping, through its Community Grant Programme.

On Friday, June 13 over one tonne of shopping, including ‘most-needed items’ such as cereal bars, chocolate, tinned meat and fruit juice, was delivered to Norwich foodbank courtesy of international financial services firm Foresters Financial
 
A team of 10 Foresters Financial members arrived at the foodbank warehouse in Earlham on the morning of Saturday, June 14 to unpack, date sort and put away all the items ready to be packed in to food parcels by the foodbank volunteers in the coming weeks and months.
 
John McGrath, Satellite Leader, who organised the shop said: "When times get tough people rely on the support of Norwich foodbank. Foresters Financial and their Members were pleased to support this local charity with a donation of food and time."
 
Norwich foodbank Project Manager Hannah Worsley said: "The support of Foresters Financial has come at a great time of year, as the summer months are typically our quietest time of year for donations and some stock items have been very low.
 
“We were extremely grateful to specify the items we needed and it was great to see the crates filling up with tinned tomatoes and sponge puddings!"
 
In the 6 months to the end of June, Norwich foodbank gave out over 4,000 food parcels, which included support to just over 1,300 children. 

9,250 food parcels given to local people in the last 12 months 

including 2,995 children,
