Fosterplus have been busy gathering food donations over the festive period to donate to food banks up and down the country, including the Trussell Trust.
The Trussell Trust said its network of over 400 foodbanks provided almost 160,000 three-day emergency food supplies in December last year, a 49% increase for the monthly average for the 2017/18 financial year.
Staff and carers, who provide suitable families for looked after children, filled boxes with tins and packets.
The food donated is given in emergency food parcels to people referred because they cannot afford to feed themselves and their families.
Donations included a variety of long life food items such as: drinks, Christmas treats, toiletries, household products, dog food and baby supplies. The donations were then driven to the food banks, to enable people to have a happier Christmas.
Our teams have been looking for local charities to support that fits really well with foster care and our visions and values, which is why we decided to launch a nationwide food bank appeal.
We wanted to give something back to the communities and make a difference to the lives of families, and particularly children, living in and around our fostering centre locations.
