Appeal to supermarkets for more foodbank help

Last week I blogged about the proposal to set up a new Foodbank in Launceston.

This week, there have been reports of shortages in stocks held by the various foodbanks across Cornwall because of high demand. I'm very pleased to see the Cornwall Council Cabinet Member Armand Toms has, together with Bishop Tim, written to the bosses of all the main supermarkets asking if they could help out more.

It's already the case that some of the biggest supporters of Foodbanks are supermarkets, but at times like these when many families are feeling the pinch and some are falling into crisis, it's important that every section of society does what it can to help.
