Stratford foodbank benefits from festive donation

Stratford Editorial 18th Dec, 2023   0

FESTIVE food can now be served up to more Stratford families struggling with the cost-of-living.

Local housing provider Orbit has donated Christmas food items to Stratford foodbank.

Orbit staff also volunteered at the foodbank’s food drive at local supermarkets, which helped to create around 400 Christmas hampers for vulnerable residents.

Around 35 per cent of people who access the foodbank are Orbit customers.




Orbit spokesperson Cheryl Flavell said: “Orbit supports the foodbank all year round, but it’s particularly important at this time of year. We hope that our contribution to the Christmas hampers helps customers and local residents alike to enjoy the festivities.”

Foodbank manager Kate Morris added: “We are really grateful to Orbit for the all year round support it gives to the Stratford Foodbank. Most recently their support has been invaluable with festive donations and their staff volunteering to spend two days supporting our Tesco food drive event. Thank you Orbit.”
