Star Platforms has extended the donation of 4.5m Nano access platform to the charity, to support their warehouse operation during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Luton Foodbank started in April 2013 and has since helped thousands of people and families with the aim to eradicate food poverty and support people in Luton. The ‘not-for-profit’ organisation is run entirely for the benefit of people in and around Luton who need emergency food. On average they put together and send over 270 parcels per week, containing more than 4000 items.
The Nano low-level platform allows us to reach food items quickly and safely, particularly when space is at a premium. This pandemic has put extra pressure on families to provide even basic food items, so we are relieved that Star Platforms are able to extend their support until the new year.”Salma Khan, Manager, Luton Foodbank
When we first started to support the Luton Foodbank 12 months ago through our sponsorship of Luton Town Football Club, we never could have anticipated the challenge that was to come with the COVID-19 Pandemic. The loan of the Nano platform was needed now more than ever so we were happy to continue our support in what is considered a lifeline to the local community”.Richard Miller, Managing Director, Star Platforms,
