We have a brand new donation point at ASDA Telford town centre!
This is a part of the fight hunger, create change campaign in which ASDA aim to help to tackle food poverty in the UK.
8.4 million in the UK are struggling to afford to eat, 1 in 10 are missing meals to pay bills and 1 in 4 of those affected are children.
The donation box is located just before the security desk as you approach the escalators.
We also have a food drive planned at the Donnington Wood store on the 2nd June which is THIS Saturday!
If you’d like to donate some of your time you can send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

We are expecting a spike in referrals over the Easter holidays due to free school meals being unavailable. To find your nearest donation point, please click here
