MKFM Column: MKFM launch new food bank campaign in Milton Keynes alongside Grab Now

We need your help to ensure nobody goes hungry in MK during these uncertain times.

In 2017, thanks to the generosity of MK residents, we smashed our target of 50,000 tins with over 64,000 tins collected for the MK Food Bank.

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

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

Unfortunately, the food bank needs to prepare for the situation to become worse as we move through the autumn and winter months.

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

To help with our campaign, Grab Now are donating four tins of food for every single delivery they make.

So, by switching to Grab Now, your order will directly help feed Milton Keynes with four tins going directly to the Food Bank. Just order as usual through Grab Now and they will do the rest.

In addition, you can directly donate to the Food Bank campaign online. Just add the amount of tins you wish to donate to the MK Food Bank, select any time on the pre-order form, make payment and Grab Now will donate them directly to the MK Food Bank as part of our target of 70,000.

Gavin Sokhi from Grab Now said: “Once again the people of Milton Keynes have rallied to support the community with an overwhelming response to the Grab Now & MKFM MK Food Bank campaign.

“Our delivery drivers have been making daily journeys to the food bank, courtesy of the MK public’s generosity. As the winter starts to kick in and the festive season approaches it’s important for businesses like Grab Now and others do their bit to ensure nobody goes hungry in MK.”

Stay tuned to MKFM for regular updates and other ways you can get involved.
