Optimum Electrics Donates a huge 165K of essentials to Peterborough Foodbank




With the winter chill settling in, bills increasing, and the financial pressure of the festive period, the need for foodbanks is about to reach its annual peak. With this in mind, Optimum Electrics recently put out an appeal to our staff, regular clients, and fellow trades to donate to the Peterborough foodbank.


Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – these food donations are absolutely vital to their ability to provide everyone referred to them with a balanced and nutritious supply of food.


During our visit to their warehouse in Fengate, a volunteer informed us that they are seeing a 25% increase in the need for their food and supplies, while there has also been a 25% decrease in donations.


Thanks to the incredible response from our staff and clients we were able to donate a huge 165 kilograms of essentials to the Peterborough Food Bank this morning. With the average meal being 440g, the donation will provide around 375 meals to those in need.


We’d love to give a huge shout-out to both Princebuild and Star Nurseries for their generous contributions.


At this time, the Peterborough food bank is currently in urgent need of the following items:


TINNED SOUP

PASTA SAUCE IE PASTA BAKE AND BOLOGNESE SAUCES

TINNED VEGETABLES

INSTANT MASH

TINNED FRUIT

TINNED MEAT (MEATBALLS ,SAUSAGES IN BEANS , CHILLI CON CARNE )

CEREALS 500GM OR 375GM NOT PORRIDGE OATS PLEASE
