I am writing to say 'Thank You' to everyone at Bedford Park Run for your recent donation to Bedford Foodbank of 32.89 kg of non-perishable items.
Donations, such as yours, are a very welcome help in the on-going provision of items for those in our community who are in need. Unfortunately, the need for help from the Foodbank continues to increase year upon year and we now regularly feed around 500 people a month, giving them enough food for 3-4 days, or around 10 meals. The monthly food leaving our warehouse is generally in the region of 5-6 tonnes, so we are very grateful for all donations, whether money or food that we receive, as each one is vital for the ongoing work of the Foodbank, and is greatly appreciated.
You may be interested to know that in the last 2 months we have helped 1141 people, 382 of these were children.
