    Food bank is awesome. The parcel of food is only part of the story. Every client is treated in a friendly, non-judgmental and compassionate way and offered support and advice by people who are passionate about their cause. With all the buy one get one free offers available it is possible to donate to your local food bank for very little money. It means making a difference needn't eat hugely into your income.
