Yet another busy week started with an article in the Doncaster Free Press regards how we have had to tighten up on referrals due to the stock levels of food running extremely low. You can read the article by clicking here.

We once again offered our support to Cambeth Community Project C.I.C by donating surplus food and distributed it amongst Doncaster’s most vulnerable and in need.

Support from Lidl Doncaster to FoodAWARE CIC donating surplus food for the local communityHuge thanks to Lidl GB for their ongoing support with surplus and donated food.‬

‪Our team collected two pallets of essential supplies from their Bentley store in Doncaster, South Yorkshire yesterday which will be distributed to Mexborough Foodbank and many other local community projects supporting local families in need during these very challenging times.

We are hugely grateful to store manager Amy Johnson (former manager of Mexborough store) for her ongoing support of our grassroots community support across Doncaster and surrounding areas.

Other local Lidl stores will also be collected from on a regular basis moving forward as demand for food parcels continues to increase especially in local deprived communities.

Some of these have been donated to Mexborough Foodbank & Swinton Lock Activity Centre to support food parcel demand locally.

The rest have been redistributed to our South Yorkshire community projects via our Hellaby base supporting deprived communities in Doncaster, Rotherham and Barnsley.
