As businesses and families are hit by the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, retail co-ops across the UK are working together to support food banks and campaign against food injustice. Find out how you can support and #GiveALittleSomething
Give a little something
Please #GiveALittleSomething to support local foodbanks, and ask your council to do more to ensure that no-one goes hungry.
Here's how you can help:
- Donate food, toiletries, household goods or other items via your local co-op store.
- If you are a member of a retail co-op, you may be able to donate your dividend. Contact your local co-op to find out how to do this.
- Find out whether your local council has a food champion using this tool, and write to them to ask them to do more to combat food poverty and food injustice.
- Raise awareness on social media using the hashtag #GiveALittleSomething and encourage others to get involved.
- Sign up to support the Trussell Trust's Hunger Free Future campaign
