How this cause brings people in the community together

During the recent Covid-19 pandemic there has been a greatly increased community spirit, raising awareness of the foodbank within the local community. It has resulted in an increase in both food donations and fundraising activities. There has also been a much greater involvement from volunteer drivers willing to take food to people in self-isolation.
