Agents urged to support their local food banks

Agents Giving is celebrating its continued support of The Trussell Trust and local food bank centers with a nationwide campaign to celebrate Agents Giving Day on Thursday 17th June 2021.

The aim is to encourage all agents and suppliers to support their local food banks by donating a food parcel as more people than ever are facing extreme poverty.

According to The Trussell Trust 2.5 million emergency parcels were provided to people in crisis in 2020/21, this was a 128% increase compared to five years ago.

Agents Giving are asking for your help to tackle ongoing hunger in your local community by preparing a simple food parcel of items to donate to your local food bank to help with the supplies they so desperately need at this current time.

Your office can collect food donations from your area encouraging the wider community to also take part and donate. You can also contribute by purchasing and donating items to your local food bank via your local supermarket collection bin.

Last year Agents Giving Day saw over 15,000 food items collected and this year they hope to beat that figure.

A few of the agents taking part this year include; Thomas Morris Estate Agents, Relocation Agent Network and Belvoir.

You can find the Agents Giving Day Toolkit on the website for all you need to be part of this national food drive.

Michael Stoop, Agents Giving chairman, said: “We are encouraging everyone to support their local food banks this Agents Giving Day.  By simply collecting up and donating a food parcel it can help make such a difference to those living and going hungry in our local communities.”
