EASTER SUPPORT: Volunteers in Coventry assemble food parcels for children in need this Easter
Volunteers from both the University of Warwick Business School and University of Warwick amongst other Coventry-based organisations are coming together to pack 3,100 Easter care parcels for local children in need.
The special parcels – which will be packed by the volunteers according to current government guidelines – will then be delivered to children in need across the city during the Easter holidays. Organised in partnership with Coventry City Council, the parcels will include breakfast items for a minimum of four days, two toys – including frisbees, ring flyers and tennis balls, an Easter egg, as well as a selection of essential long-life food items.
Coventry Foodbank was established at the start of 2011, now through its 13 citywide food distribution centres, it has rapidly become one of the largest foodbanks across the country. Recently, the Coventry Foodbank has become part of Feed The Hungry, a charity which worked holistically with food provision organisations to find a way to end the need for emergency food in the city. The Easter appeal hopes to bring the joy of Easter to many local families in crisis.
