Food banks are a critical service for the most vulnerable in society and Morrisons is aiming to provide help for those that need it the most during these difficult times. The supermarket is giving £10m of food to local food banks and charities across the UK by the end of July, with all manufacturing sites working for an additional hour in an increased effort to make more food for more people. Those in store can also help donate by buying extra products and leaving them at the drop off point.
Morrisons CEO, David Potts, announced the news on BBC Breakfast and widespread coverage followed, including pieces in every national news outlet and lots of praise across social media. From employing charity workers in its stores to trying to make sure everyone has something to eat, Morrisons has shone during these tough times and we’re proud to be a part of it.
