Incommunities in foodbank support in Keighley

Incommunities van loaded with foodbank supplies

Incommunities has rallied round to donate 200 big bags of food to the Salvation Army’s foodbank in Keighley.

The housing group’s Refresh catering team has brought in thousands of non-perishable food and daily living items from its suppliers and is ready to make more foodbank deliveries.

Carrier bags for the Salvation Army delivery were kindly provided by Iceland foods.

Incommunities teams are also working with Bradford Council and local partners to make deliveries to thousands of vulnerable residents in other parts of the district, including those having to self isolate.

Geraldine Howley, Incommunities’ Group Chief Executive said: "These are challenging times for our communities and our foodbank donations continue our ongoing support for local families and individuals who reply on these sources of essential supplies.

"As a group we are committed to protecting our customers and communities and focused on maintaining our essential services whilst adhering to the latest Government advice.

"Tackling this pandemic involves the combined efforts of organisations, individuals and communities."

Joshe Selfe, Salvation Army Officer, Keighley, said: "We are so grateful for the kind support of Incommunities. The donated food will be a life saver for many of our customers at this difficult time."

The demand at the foodbank has risen from 30 to 100 parcels a week and they anticipate further growth in the weeks to come.

Food donations can be dropped off on Tuesday and Thursdays (9.30am -2.30pm) at the building, High Street, ky BD21 2LJ. To make a donation go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/keighley-salvation-army1
