How many people reading this are aware that there are 2000 food banks in the UK and that this year alone they have handed out more than one million food parcels to those in need? If you have seen the Ken Loach film “I, Daniel Blake” you may have some insight into the problems of the homeless and the hungry.
Sadly, in the London Borough of Harrow, Harrow Foodbank, seeded by the Trussell Trust, is running three centres for the distribution of food.
The Pinner Association, acutely aware of its role within the charitable sector, is about to make a donation of £1000 to Harrow Foodbank. Donations are sorely needed from community associations and the general public as there are very few if any large corporate donors in the Borough.
The Pinner Association is proud to be of help in this way and hopes that other organisations will be keen to follow its example.
