The Season for Giving
At Grunwald/Langguth UK we’ve taken the ‘Season for Giving’ to heart and made a cash donation to our local Food Bank, the Sleaford New Life Community Larder.
Food bank use in the UK has soared at a higher rate than ever before with fourteen million people living below the poverty line in the UK and it’s estimated that 60% of those are working families.
Low income is the biggest single (and fastest growing) reason for referral to food banks, as well as debt, the rise in housing costs and utility bills as well as changes and delays in benefit payments.
A lot of food banks do a lot more than providing food. Many offer services like money advice and Fuel Banks, helping people to break the cycle of poverty.
If you can, have a look at how you can support your local Food Bank. The smallest donation can make a big change, not just at Christmas but throughout the year.
