Dining out on homeless charity bid

Bars and restaurants in the city are joining forces once again to raise money for charity in time for Christmas.

Firms based in The Hub are raising cash in aid of MK Food Bank, which provides local families and individuals with essential food supplies when they are most in need. That need has gone up massively during the times of austerity, with the number of food parcels given out in the city going up by 72 per cent in the last two years. 

To take part, just ‘Like’ The Hub on Facebook and £1 will be donated to the charity. 

Simon Spavins, managing director of Broadoak Management which runs The Hub, said: “As the city’s premier dining destination MK Food Bank is the ideal charity for The Hub to support. Our fiends in the social media community have really got behind this campaign over the last couple of years and we’re hoping for even more support his year to break our target of £1,000.”

MK Food Bank distributed just under 13,000 food packs in 2013. A typical single adult food pack costs around £15 to produce, so donations of both food and money are critical for the charity.
