Exhibition food and drink feeds the hungry

Posted on April 27, 2017

Up to 500 people struggling to feed themselves and their families are thought to have benefited from a massive 4.5 tons of food donated from Nisa’s annual exhibition at Stoneleigh.

Stock from Nisa’s Store of the Future along with goods from supplier stands were collected by staff from the Trussell Trust and Fayre Share and delivered to foodbanks across the Coventry and Birmingham areas.

Almost two tons of fresh and chilled produce was distributed straight away whilst the remaining groceries, which included drinks, crisps, chocolates and other confectionery, went into foodbank stock to be distributed over a number of weeks.

Once the show drew to a close staff and volunteers from the foodbanks flooded the exhibition hall armed with crates and loaded in everything from bread to fruit and vegetables, ready meals to ice cream.

Chocolate eggs from the Easter displays were also taken to the food banks to share with local children and ensure they don’t miss out on treats.

Hugh McNeill, Coventry Foodbank Project Manager said: “A donation of this size means such a lot to the people in Coventry. We have a food bank open every day of the week and we are currently feeding more than 300 people weekly from our 16 centres alone.

“We are extremely grateful to Nisa for their continued support and look forward to next year when we can work together again.”
