Food Bank Xtra

The MK Food Bank have teamed up with MK Council to launch Food Bank Xtra and meet the challenge of Coronavirus.

Food Bank Xtra is a city-wide food service, with additional staff and a new, larger distribution centre to ensure it has the right resources to cope with the additional demand expected during the Coronavirus outbreak.
