Food Bank Donation Points at Booths

food banks at Booths

All year round you can find food bank donation points in Booths stores.

In a scheme pioneered by our very own Colin Porter, we’re partnered with an assortment of local charities from donation hubs, who distribute donations to where they’re needed, to kitchens who can make use of our surplus food. A selection of our partners even work from within the stores themselves, in space reserved for them in our warehouses. Colin says:

Supporting anybody who is in need is core to the Booths values and we want to help more people and families who are going through challenging times. Homelessness, financial issues or just circumstances that have fallen upon you can make the basics in life a challenge and I am personally delighted and proud to say; we are going to help make a difference to local people and families throughout the coming year.
