Durham Box supports Feeding Families charity with box donations 

Once again this year, Durham Box has been working closely with their chosen local charity, Feeding Families, donating large quantities of boxes and dump bins, designed and printed free of charge.

The charity helps families in the Sunderland, Newcastle, County Durham, Northumberland and Teesside areas who are experiencing food poverty. In support, they have created a strategic model to provide food to those in need, working with experts who deal with poverty issues. This partnership allows these professionals to focus on their expertise, while Feeding Families ensures that food is available to those in need.

Durham Box’s involvement with the charity began in 2017 with a food project for Christmas; since then their role has expanded significantly with the provision of emergency food boxes for the Feeding Families’ year-round programme. So far in 2023, Durham Box has provided an array of resources, including 4,000 welcome home boxes, 28,500 standard boxes, 1,500 collection bins, 300 toppers and 12,000 Christmas boxes. These donations have allowed Feeding Families to deliver emergency food boxes across 12 local authorities, providing 346,731 meals valued at £330,220.
