It was such an amazing day for the #TeamingUpForFamilies food collection. The sun was shining and everyone was having a great time at the #Hull&Proud event that took place in #WestPark before Hull FC match on Saturday 17th August 2019.
The generous public donated a huge 40 trays worth of ambient food, which will be used to support local families across Hull who are struggling with food poverty and insecurity. The food has been delivered to the FareShare depot to be sorted and packed ready for delivery.
Thank you so much to everyone who donated this weekend. In the UK, 4.7 million people are living in severe food insecure households, which means their food intake is greatly reduced and children regularly experience physical sensations of hunger. FareShare’s research shows that 46% of people accessing the services of our charity partners have gone a whole day without a proper meal in the last month. These figures show just how important your donations are to the families in Hull.
