MKFM Community Challenge
Can you help MKFM's Mid Morning Show presenters Darren and Lia collect 50,000 tins for the Food Bank here in Milton Keynes?
Darren and Lia have set themselves a brand new community challenge for 2017.
The aim is to collect 50,000 tins of food for the MK Food Bank over 90 days between 3rd April and 30th June 2017.
Hunger is not just a problem in other countries. Sadly, there are many people in Milton Keynes who are many people living on the edge of poverty.
School holidays can place additional pressure on household budgets when free school meals aren't available.
The MK Food Bank relies entirely on donations of food and money from the public, businesses, organisations and individuals with every single item or penny given makes a difference. Businesses, Churches and Community Groups can all get involved helping The Food Bank in a variety of ways.
How does the Food Bank work?
Referral Agencies identify families and individuals who need our support and issue a voucher entitling them to a food parcel. Food parcels can be picked up from one of our serving sessions located around the city. Clients can receive a food parcel x5 times within a rolling 12 month period.
How can you help?
Darren and Lia will have updates on MKFM's Mid Morning Show every day. You can listen on 106.3FM and on DAB Digital Radio.
Drop your cans off
MKFM is based at the Intu Shopping centre opposite Gap just outside by the horseshoe.
