Chiefs at Blackpool Food Bank have issued an appeal for freezer space after a huge donation to their cause.
The organisation has been offered up to 50 pallets containing a ‘unusually large’ number of ready meals, with a 12-month shelf life, from Laila’s Fine Foods in Bispham.
A spokesman for the food bank comments: “We have worked closely with Laila’s Fine Foods over the years and this most recent donation would meet a huge need across our town of Blackpool. “Due to the volume of this, we have been working hard to secure additional bulk freezer storage and would welcome contact from anyone who would be able to help us store the meals.”
Laila’s Fine Foods managing director Laila Remtulla comments: “We regularly work with local food banks, and various local charities, to distribute excess yield and discontinued lines to ensure they are going to good causes and not to waste.”
