Astra donates much needed food to local foodbank

2020-12-29



Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems. And, with the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, more people than ever before are relying on foodbanks.

Astra Security, based in Yate near Bristol have a local foodbank close to their offices, and it became obvious that more donations were needed. Sarah Steer, General Manager at Astra contacted them, and they told her which foods were most needed, and details of where to deliver etc.

Sarah said, “We were asked to provide those really wanted items, which included potatoes; Christmas pudding and cake; deodorant; tinned vegetables and Christmas treats. They are all things which many of us take for granted and naturally expect to have. A simple food box such as this can make a huge difference. It feels more important than ever before to support those people who are facing crisis after the year we have all experienced and especially at Christmas-time.”

The North Bristol Foodbank, is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty, and hunger across the UK. In 2019/20, The Trussell Trust’s Foodbank network provided over 1.9 million three-day emergency food supplies and support to UK people in crisis.

Supporting local communities is an important part of the ethos for Astra Security. They understand the importance of giving something back, and the impact that this has.
