Chesterfield Food Bank Receives Donation From Amazon

A foodbank in Chesterfield has received a donation of food and produce worth £1,000 from the Amazon fulfilment centre in the town. 

Freedom Community Project operates multiple food banks across the East Midlands and South Yorkshire, providing emergency food and support to people in crisis. 

The team from Amazon made a special trip to the charity to deliver some of the items, meet the volunteers, and learn more about the work the charity does. 

This is the second time the Amazon team has supported Freedom Community Project since it became a charity in 2012. 

Richard Cowlishaw-Ellison, site leader at Amazon in Chesterfield, said:

“It was a pleasure to support Freedom Community Project once again. This time was particularly rewarding as we were able to see first-hand the incredible work the charity does, meeting the needs of vulnerable people in our community.” 

Mark North, CEO, from Freedom Community Project, said:

“We are sincerely thankful to Amazon for its support of Freedom over the past couple of years. The donations of food and products enable our organisation to continue supporting those people struggling with poverty in Chesterfield.”

Freedom Community Project received the donation as part of Amazon’s programme to support the communities around its operating locations across the UK.

Amazon is providing disadvantaged students with online STEM courses as well as teaming up with charity partner Magic Breakfast and delivering more than five million healthy breakfasts to families in England.
