The intu Milton Keynes Festive Food Drop is a pledge to match all food and cash donations made between Monday 4 November and Tuesday 24 December - doubling the amount raised for the MK Food Bank during the Christmas season.
To get involved you can donate at our Food Drop point by our Customer Info desk, located between Five Guys and Debenhams.
For people living on the edge of poverty in Milton Keynes, the cold festive period can leave them increasingly unable to cover living costs such as heating, food and other essentials, putting the Food Bank under increasing pressure.
The ongoing partnership between intu Milton Keynes and MK Food Bank, which initially launched in March this year. Now, at arguably the most important time of the year, the Festive Food Drop aims to raise up to £10,000 worth of food and cash.
Each week, all donated food is collected by volunteers from the Food Bank ready to be distributed to local people living on the edge of poverty.
The Food Bank relies entirely on donations of food and money from the community, as well as the support of its local volunteers. It is currently low on tinned items such as vegetables, meat, tomatoes, rice pudding and custard, as well as long life juice and milk, and pasta sauce.
