MKFM Column: MKFM hope to smash a target of 70,000 tins for the MK Food Bank

Your help is needed to ensure nobody goes hungry in MK during these uncertain times…

In 2017 MKFM set a target of raising 50,000 tins of food for the food bank in MK, with your help we
smashed that target and collected the equivalent of 64,000 tins through food and cash donations.

The MK Food Bank has gone from providing 1,000 tins per month to now over 1,000 per week due to the pandemic.

With winter fast approaching, the food bank needs to prepare for the situation to become worse due to the expected economic fallout from Covid-19.

MKFM’s new campaign will officially launch in September but you can help now by using the Grab Now app.

This time we are looking to raise the bar, with the help of Grab Now, with a target of 70,000 tins.

Grab Now is a locally owned version of Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Just Eat. In addition to delivering your
favourite food, Grab Now also delivers flowers, birthday cakes, groceries and so much more.

For every delivery made by Grab Now, they are donating four tins of food to MKFM’s campaign. By switching to Grab Now, your order will directly help feed people here in Milton Keynes with four tins going directly to the MK Food Bank.

Just order as usual through Grab Now and they will do the rest.

Stay tuned to MKFM for regular updates and other ways you can get involved when the campaign officially
starts in September.
