Store links up with school to help fight hunger

Dukinfield's All Saints Catholic College has said a huge thank you to the town's Morrisons store following a generous donation to the school.

Food and drink was delivered for distribution to help vulnerable families throughout the half-term holidays.

Nationally the store is aiming to provide 15,000 lunchboxes daily to help fight holiday hunger as part of a country-wide effort to ensure no school child in need goes without an adequate meal this half-term.

Morrisons is also to offer customers the option to support the effort by buying their own ‘Pick Up Packs’, which will also be distributed to young people.

Rebecca Singleton, Customer and Community Director at Morrisons, said: “We want to do our bit to ensure that as many school children as possible can eat good, nutritious food while they are out of school. We will be delighted if customers are also able to donate food in our stores to help fight holiday hunger.”
