We at Rachel Riley have strong family and community values and want to play our part to support those in need at this difficult time for everybody. We will therefore be making a contribution to the Trussell Trust for every food-themed item purchased from us.
We will be donating £1 from each purchase of these selected items to the Trussell Trust and will also offer our customers the opportunity to make their own additional donation.
More and more people are being forced to food banks because there’s nowhere else for them to turn. Last year the food banks in the Trussell Trust network provided 1.6 million three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis and over 500,000 of these went to children. This was an increase of almost 20% on the previous year and now, as the Coronavirus pandemic develops, more people than ever need our help. This situation presents a huge additional pressure to the already overstretched network of food banks. The Trussell Trust is working closely with the food banks to support them in any way they need so that those most vulnerable to the impacts of poverty and isolation can survive these months of crisis.
