The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan has pledged its support to help local and national food banks, supplying them with more than 10,000 complimentary packs of its most popular savoury snacks.
The Corby-based food manufacturing company split the donations between three Trussell Trust food banks in Kettering, Corby and Grantham and the Fareshare Food Bank in Leicester.
These donations will all support hard-hit families in this difficult time.
This is the third round of donations by the company, which has already delivered care packages to front line care staff in Corby, Age UK Northampton, and Grantham Food Bank in Lincolnshire.
Chris McDermott, managing director of The 1:1 Diet, said: “We’re well aware of the financial hardship that this crisis has inadvertently caused and have seen the growing number of people visiting food banks across the country.
“We wanted to offer our support to The Trussell Trust and Fareshare at a local and national level. They are doing fantastic work, keeping vulnerable people fed and watered, and we’re honoured that we can provide some help during this terrible pandemic.”
A spokesperson for Corby Foodbank said: “On behalf of Corby Foodbank I would like to say a very big thank you for the kind donation of fava beans, which are not a normal item on our shopping list. We believe our clients will appreciate them as an addition to their food parcels by giving them a healthy and flavoursome treat.”
