Brunswick Foodbank Appeal [page header] - ycr2019 - 001

Our Local FOodbanks need your support

We've teamed up with Brunswick Scarborough to support their brand-new 'BeKind' food bank appeal, which aims to help boost stock levels in Scarborough's local food banks with much needed supplies.

This Summer, we are urging you to donate non perishable goods, from beans to pasta and dog food to toiletries, by leaving them at the collection points at Brunswick Scarborough. All donations will be passed to the foodbanks at The Rainbow Centre and The Salvation Army Scarborough.

Low income, and a host of other problems are forcing over 35 people every single day to use the food bank at Scarborough’s Rainbow Centre, that’s up a huge 20% on last year! The Rainbow Centre is now busier than it's ever been in its 23-year history, whilst over the summer, the Salvation Army will support more children than ever before with prepared meals, to nourish them when they won’t be getting lunches at school. 

These local charities need your support to help provide for local people who need a little extra help.

At the Grand-Opening!

HOw you Can help Brunswick's BeKind Appeal

‘Foodbank Donation Stations’ are placed around the shopping centre, where you can leave non perishable items. 

 

Trish Kinsella, The Rainbow Centre, manager, said:

People always step up and give generously when we ask for help and we need their support more than ever. We predicted the delays and difficulties caused by Universal Credit would create enormous hardship for many people and sadly we’ve been proven right. It’s 23 years since we opened our doors and we’re busier than ever.  This initiative with Brunswick could really make a difference to the number of local families we can help.


Major Stephen Noble from the Salvation Army added:

Poverty is a growing issue within the community of Scarborough. for many years we have had a heavy focus on the needs of men and women who are homeless, however today we are stretched as we encounter children who are not being fed at home over a weekend and who are at high risk during summer holidays,  this reality drives our provision of food through foodbank, but also in providing hot meals for children, the elderly and the  homeless on a weekly basis.


Referrals to the foodbanks have been climbing with every passing month and during June they were up 20% compared to the same period last year. To match this increased demand for the services The Rainbow Centre & Salvation Army Scarborough provide, we need your help and donations.
