AMETEK Land Collaborates With Local Food Bank To Tackle Cost of Living Crisis in the Community

AMETEK Land has teamed up with Chesterfield Foodbank to support local families struggling with the rising cost of living.

Chesterfield Foodbank is a charity that provides emergency food and support to people in crisis, including those affected by poverty, job loss, benefit changes, and other difficult situations. The food bank relies on donations from local businesses and individuals to help meet the growing demand for its services.

AMETEK Land's staff recently made a generous donation to the food bank, which will help provide much-needed food and supplies to local families in need. The company's donation will also help raise awareness of the cost-of-living crisis in the community and encourage others to get involved and support the food bank's mission.

Josh Bagnall, Marketing Communications Executive at AMETEK Land, said: "We're proud to support the Chesterfield Foodbank and help make a positive impact in our community [...] We know that many families are struggling to make ends meet, and we hope that our donation will help provide some relief during these difficult times."

According to the Trussell Trust — the UK's largest network of food banks — the number of emergency parcels distributed by its network rose by 47% in the first six months of the COVID-19 pandemic, compared to the same period in the previous year. The rising cost of living, coupled with the economic impact of the pandemic, has left many families struggling to put food on the table.

"AMETEK Land's donation is a wonderful example of the kind of community support that makes all the difference to people in crisis," said Jacqueline DeVeaux, Communications, Engagement and Funding Manager of Chesterfield Foodbank. "We're grateful for their generosity and their commitment to helping tackle the cost-of-living crisis in our area."

The Chesterfield Foodbank is part of a nationwide network of food banks supported by The Trussell Trust, which aims to end hunger and poverty in the UK.
