Campaign: To challenge negative misconceptions of foodbanks

I volunteer at a foodbank. It’s something which gives me a lot of satisfaction because I like to help others.

 

However, I think there are a lot of misconceptions about these organisations, which can often be a lifeline for those in need.

 

I’m working with Fixers to show that anyone can fall on hard times and going to a foodbank shouldn’t be seen as a sign of weakness.

 

I hope my campaign will make people understand the value of these organisations and the crucial work they do.

I would like to thank Elise Schofield for helping me with this Fix.
