Morrisons in Kirkby has recently announced a new partnership with Northwood Together to help local families access food during the summer holidays.
Morrisons regularly donate food items to Northwood Together who then redistribute it via their food drop ins. However, they have decided to take their support to families one step further.
In their stores, Morrisons place food bank pick up bags at the entrance of the store and at their tills, filled with items that shoppers can buy to donate to families in need. Morrisons have now advised that some of bags that are purchased via the scheme will be donated to Northwood Together to redistribute.
So throughout this Summer Morrisons will be working closely with Northwood Together to redistribute some items that have been kindly purchased by shoppers at their store in Kirkby.
Faye Lynch, Community Champion for Morrisons said ‘ Helping to tackle food hunger has always been one of my priorities since I started my job with Morrisons.
I am proud to say we have been able to create this partnership with Northwood Together to be able to help make a difference within the Kirkby community.
Being able to make up bags of essential items and have them on sale in store along with our own donations is going to make real a difference and I am honoured to be working with such an amazing team that is Northwood Together for our community.’
So the next time you call into Morrisons, and you see a foodbank pick up bag by the entrance, or at the till please help us beat holiday hunger this summer buy a bag and help feed our families.
We run regular pop-up boutiques where people can call into and look through our clothes rails and can take any items free of charge. You can stay and have a cuppa, slice of cake and a chat.
The date of our next pop up is Saturday 22nd October 2022 from 11 - 1pm, from our base at 11 Lifton Road, Northwood, L33 9YA.
