It’s been reported that the emergency food aid sector, including food banks, have been struggling due to the drop in donations from both individuals and the supermarkets in the last two months since COVID-19 took hold of the nation.

We know that the outbreak has made it much more difficult for some families and individuals to either financially or physically access food. As such, we have continued to contribute to our local food bank, as we have for the last three years ensuring some of our success at Thread goes back into the local community. We are incredibly proud of the work that the centre at Stratford Upon Avon is undertaking at this difficult time, including having to move premises to the Methodist Church in Old Town to ensure volunteers and customers remain safe.
