Supermarket donates hundreds of pounds of products to local food bank

ASDA SELSEY has donated much needed supplies to a local foodbank.


The store, located at Wave Approach, made a donation worth £400 to Chichester District Foodbank, consisting of products that are in high demand, including tinned fruit, vegetables, fish, pasta, sauces, juices, and toiletries.


Chichester District Foodbank is a project founded by the local churches and works together with community groups towards stopping hunger in the local area. It has four foodbank centres, of which Selsey is one.


General store manager at Asda Selsey, Martyn Compton, said: “The work that the volunteers at Chichester District Foodbank do is fantastic.


“The team and I are really pleased that we’re able to support them with this donation, and in turn help out those in the local area.”


Lisa Allinson, volunteer at Chichester District Foodbank, said: “Each day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill.


“A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks like ours helping to prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.”
