Corby is a town filled with many charities; however, some are shrouded and shadowed, when they should be known and helped.

The Corby food bank is one of the many charities within the town which is not as well known as it should be.

The food bank offers food, which has been donated, to those who are in dire need of nutrition that they can not afford.

This crucial and considerate charity does all it can to benefit the people of the town.

But they rely heavily on donations made by the Corby public and, recently, those donations have become frail.

The way the food bank works begins with the Corby public giving whatever in date food they can to local schools, churches, and sometimes even businesses.

The food is collected, stored and, when someone is in need, it is distributed to the people who are most in need of it.

This sounds relatively simple, but it is proving to be a difficult task.

Every year, fewer and fewer people are donating food, and the starving and less fortunate are not getting the proper care and nutrition they so desperately need.

This year donations are needed more than ever, and with Christmas coming up and the harsh winter months pushing relentlessly into our lives they need our help.

The Corby food bank also gives the people of Corby a chance to become a volunteer, and help with the distribution of food.

Volunteers are all welcomed warmly by the people at the food bank, and real friendships and bonds are formed.

As well as donating food, and volunteering, money donations are always welcomed.

If you are interested in raising money for the food bank, why not do just that?

Have a bake sale, or a karaoke night, and raise some money for an absolutely incredible cause.

If there is anyone who is remotely interested in donating or becoming a volunteer please don’t hesitate to get in contact with the food bank.
