Weʼre raising £10,000 to Bulk Buy food for Food Banks running low on supplies - instead of relying on donations alone.
- London, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
People resorting to foodbanks to survive is at record levels, largely driven by changes to welfare and poor pay.
This means the demand for donations of food is rocketing day by day - and simply relying upon the generosity and goodwill is not enough.
We want to create a fund which allows us to go and purchase in bulk, food at the lowest possible price - by using sheer buying power we can often purchase hundreds of kilos of food from wholesalers and retailers at near cost price.
This process allows local foodbanks to focus on what they do best - distruibuting food to those most in need of this often crucial support.
We are working across 2 cities, Greater Manchester and London, we will purchase and transport the food from retailer to foodbanks across both cities
But in order to this we need your help!

About the fundraiser
I put together this page as I felt the need to do something about the tragic increase in the useage of food banks, and with growing demands, more ways to increase stock are needed.
