Mustard Tree Food Drive
FireCask are asking for your help for one of the lovely charities we support. Mustard Tree are in need of various food and personal items.
For over 20 years Mustard Tree has been a Greater Manchester based charity committed to combatting poverty and preventing homelessness. Their involvement begins with the provision of life support such as providing emergency food, clothing and furniture and quickly progresses to sustainable solutions which is offered through their work readiness and life skills programme, the Freedom Project. In 2015/16 they handed out 3,626 food parcels to people in need and provided 49,763 meals through their various food operations all within a very tight budget and with the support of sporadic food donations from the public and businesses using mainly long life, tinned or dried food.
We are asking that you, your friends, colleagues and anyone else you know bring in one item each from the food list (below) during the month of June/July so that we can help to build the Mustard Tree’s food store back up. FireCask are opening their offices as a collection point, and we’re also offering to come and collect your donated food items and take some photos of all of your hard work in the process!
Please help us support this amazing charity and the wonderful work they do in our city. Please do not think that any collection is too small, even one food donation can really help us to get the food store back to where it needs to be. Seriously, every little helps.
For more information or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email [email protected] or call our office on 0161 222 8655. Thank you!
