The Million Meal Appeal is being held on the Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October. Leading food charity FareShare are organising volunteers to collect food donations outside Sainsbury’s branches across the country, including Ings Road and Trinity Walk.  This will be the biggest food drive held in Britain and the Labour Party nationally is helping FareShare recruit volunteers. If you or your local community group can help please visit www.fareshare.org.uk to register your support.

Food poverty is a national scandal.  I have visited foodbanks across the country and I hear the same thing everywhere I go.  The situation is getting worse and demand is going up.  People in Wakefield have a proud tradition of reaching out and helping our neighbours in times of need. I know everyone in our community will come together on the weekend of 6th October to help tackle food poverty in Wakefield.
