Stacey and Tracy from our head office recently visited local KCU Foodbank to make a donation.  
As a result of the pandemic, there has never been a better time to think about the community and helping those who have suffered the most through such difficult times. 
In addition to a regular delivery of food, we included a £200 donation which will help tackle food poverty in our local community. 
KCU provided a full Foodbank service throughout the pandemic including home deliveries to those who were self-isolating. 
Overall, they experienced a 40% increase in demand compared to normal times. 
It is estimated that KCU would have supported close to 4,000 people over the past twelve months and there is no current sign of any reduction in demand. 
No one in Kettering should go hungry. 
KCU works in partnership with the Trussell Trust to manage the Kettering and District Foodbank to ensure that no one in our community goes hungry. 
Emergency food need is met with dignity and respect through ten authorised partner agencies who hold food parcels on site, issuing them to customers when a need has been identified. This removes unnecessary travel, removes embarrassment, and increases efficiency.
