Morrisons to give £10m to food banks during coronavirus crisis

Morrisons Abergavenny

Morrisons is to dish out £10m of food to food banks across the UK during the coronavirus crisis by ramping up production from its own manufacturing sites.

The grocer, which is also the UK’s largest fresh food manufacturer, will operate its bakery, egg and fruit and vegetable packing sites for an extra hour every day in order to make, prepare and pack the food needed to restock food banks.

Morrisons also plans to send deliveries of ambient food, including pasta, bread and tinned products, to its supermarkets to be passed on to their local food bank.

The supermarket giant is also raising purchase limits on certain food lines, or removing them altogether, to make it easier for shoppers to donate to food banks.
