Last year the M Team supported the Milton Keynes Food Bank with a food collection, spent a day at one the sorting centres, and also donated family Christmas Day food and gift hampers for their festive campaign.
Today, Rebecca Savage from Milton Keynes Food Bank came over to Mirus HQ to meet the team after their latest collect for the March Big Little Give campaign.
The Food Bank provides local families and individuals with essential food supplies at a time when they need it most, covering the days or sometimes weeks before other parts of the social care infrastructure can come into play.
Mirus IT Marketing Manager, Kate Cash, responsible for charity support said “We’re particularly impressed with Milton Keynes Food Bank as the system operates on a ‘helping hand’ basis when it is really needed and discourages long term dependency. It’s a well thought-out system and great for companies to include in their regular charity initiatives as adding an extra can of soup or beans into your shopping basket is really easy to do. Our staff are always very generous when we run the Food Bank campaigns and we hope to help out more throughout the year.”
