Food Bank Xtra
The MK Food Bank have teamed up with MK Council to launch Food Bank Xtra and meet the challenge of Coronavirus.
The need for food in our community is greater than ever. Here at MK Food Bank, we are anticipating a sharp rise in demand for food in the coming weeks. It is absolutely vital and time sensitive, that if we are to meet this need, we have adequate support to distribute food and the resources to mitigate the crisis.
To ensure that this is possible, we have teamed up with Milton Keynes Council to launch ‘Food Bank Xtra’ – a new, city-wide food service. We are so grateful to Milton Keynes Council who have given an initial support of 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.
We are also launching an urgent appeal for donations, and asking those in need to contact them through a new Food Bank Helpline. You can access Food Bank Xtra by contacting the Food Bank Helpline on 01908 565852 or text HELP 07710385785 to discuss your situation in confidence with experienced staff.
