£1,000 donation provides essential food parcels for people in need in Bradford

Healthcare provider Simplyhealth, based in Leeds has donated £1,000 to Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank. The funds will enable the charity to continue to distribute food parcels to organisations working with vulnerable people in need of food.

Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank is a small registered charity, run entirely by volunteers. It receives donations of non perishable foods such as tins, cartons and jars from the community and small businesses which are then collected by organisations to send to where it is required. 

We regularly send out over 800 food parcels per month. Even though we are one of the world’s wealthiest nations, many people still find themselves needing support from us to supply food to help them overcome short term problems. Simplyhealth’s kind donation means that we can put together another 350 parcels for those that need it.

Volunteers at Bradford Food Bank are a great example of how people give up their time, money and skills to come together to help those that need it in their local community. We are pleased that we can help this charity to continue its fantastic work.
