When we began helping with the vital work that food banks do, we said that if we needed to prolong our initial 12 week support plan, we would. And now, as the UK slowly starts to return to some sort of normality, we won’t forget about those who can’t afford to buy the basics.
We are pleased to confirm that we have extended our support of these food banks for a further 12 weeks.
"We have been overwhelmed by the generosity that has been shown to those in need through your donations to the food bank. The weekly donations of food have helped ensure that we have not only been able to continue feeding those in need, but that the best range of food is provided ensuring that clients receive nutritionally balanced food packages."

In Belfast, deliveries will continue until mid-October. This ensures that the South West Belfast food bank remains fully stocked throughout the school holidays and past the point when many other donations may have ended.
The desire to make a meaningful contribution to the world we live in is at the heart of Investec’s values, and underpins our aim to be a responsible corporate citizen.
Throughout this time we’ve been so grateful to all of our colleagues who have given their time to help ensure the deliveries are made. We’d especially like to thank Paul Kerr and Jonathan McCamphill who’s been the relationship manager for Belfast.
Hear from Edel, South West Belfast food bank
