Grantham Journal letters: Foodbank - six tonnes of food was donated

Thank you to the thousands of local people who have donated into the harvest appeal for Grantham Foodbank.

We targeted 4.3 tonnes of food – this would provide over 5,000 meals to local families at the their point of crisis.

What we received over a four-week period from 50-plus schools, nurseries, business, and churches was just under six tonnes (almost 7,000 meals) – totalling almost 20,000 items.

This generosity has completely blown us away.

It is also a massive blessing that we will handle with dignity and ensure the food is directed towards supporting struggling families between now and Christmas.

Every blessing.

Brian Hanbury

Grantham Foodbank co-ordinator
