This Christmas, we're urging residents across Hull to give generously to those in need. Councillors and campaigners have been collecting food and household items for a winter donation.
We are acutely aware that too many people in Hull will go hungry this Christmas. As well as working to secure improvements as local councillors, we also wanted to make a donation to the Hull Food Bank.
This service provides help and support to those in need, at a time when they need it most
However small, we would like to urge residents to help this winter by showing support for this important project. Your donation could really make a difference to someone in the city.
Ending poverty and hunger in Hull is a huge and complex task, as local politicians we know that so much more needs to be done. But in the meantime, we hope that our donation will help just a little this Christmas.
The Hull Food Bank is supported by The Trussell Trust, which runs a network of over 400 foodbanks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK.
The Trussell Trust has provided a list of suitable items to donate, which includes: cereal, soup, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, beans, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, tea and coffee, tinned fruit, biscuits, deodorant, shampoo, shower gel, shaving foam, washing up liquid, laundry powder or detergent, toothpaste, sanitary towels, tampons, nappies, baby wipes and baby food.
