Morrisons, with stores in King's Lynn and Fakenham, join forces with McVitie's to donate biscuits to community groups
Morrisons supermarket chain, with stores in Lynn and Fakenham, and McVitie’s are joining up with customers to provide treats for those in need this Christmas.
For every pack of McVitie’s 600g Victoria Biscuits sold in store, Morrisons and McVities will donate another to a local food bank or community group.
The offer is available until Tuesday, November 24, and forms part of Morrisons drive to restock Britain’s food banks and ensure no one is left behind as many struggle with the economic fallout of COVID-19.
The 600g selection of milk, white and dark chocolate biscuits costs £3.
Rebecca Singleton, community director at Morrisons, said: “Many people have had a really difficult year and everybody deserves a treat this Christmas. This Buy One To Give One offer means customers can brighten up somebody else’s day as well as their own.”
Morrisons also offers Pick Up Pack parcels in stores that customers can purchase, containing items requested by local food banks. They are also the first UK supermarket to trial an online donation mechanism that goes straight into the pockets of local food banks. Customers can purchase £10 vouchers on the Morrisons Food Boxes website, which are then sent directly to one of 50 food banks nationwide.
