Stamp out hunger in Aberdeen
From March 2014, Petroplan’s Aberdeen office will be supporting their local food bank in an attempt to stamp out hunger in Aberdeen. Set up in June 2013 by The Trussell Trust, the mission of Aberdeen’s food bank is to support local residents who are unable to buy food for various reasons.
Petroplan plan to help through weekly collections and donations being made from the Aberdeen office, located at Regent House, 36 Regent Quay. Petroplan are encouraging any individuals or companies who would like to contribute to drop off any non-perishable food items, such as tinned food, cereals and pasta, at any time.
Unfortunately in Aberdeen, current demand far outweighs supply, which is why Petroplan would like to ramp up the support for the food bank by ensuring we can assist with these donations on a weekly basis.
Through your generous donations of non-perishable items, disadvantaged families in and around Aberdeen will be issued with food vouchers which they can exchange for nutritionally balanced food boxes. From 2012 to 2013, food banks nationwide fed a whopping 346,992 people, and of those, 126,889 were children.
Any size of donation is greatly appreciated, whether it be sifting through your kitchen cupboards or adding a few extra items to your next supermarket shop. Every item donated makes a huge difference to these people with very little.
