Grantham Foodbank received the donations as part of the ‘Spring Chicken’ initiative established by Moy Park earlier this year to provide products to foodbanks local to its sites across the UK.
The initiative builds on Moy Park’s range of existing and long-established community measures, including charity and educational programmes and is a specific feature of its £1 million Community Support Fund.
Moy Park has provided Grantham foodbank with frozen, breaded, and coated chicken products for those families and individuals in need.
Brian Hanbury, Manager Grantham Foodbank said,
“We would like to say a huge thank you to Moy Park for this generous donation, it is truly appreciated by our users. It has also helped us provider families with greater choice, from Chicken nuggets to kievs, easing the financial burden many face today. With this donation, we hope to help around 80 local families in need each month.”
Moy Park also partners closely with FareShare and recently announced they had provided over 400,000 meals to those in need through the partnership since 2015 and continues to do so alongside its range of community initiatives.
