JJ Foodservice has donated more than 200 ‘Helping Hand Packs’ to local Enfield charity The Felix Project, in order to help families in the local Enfield area to deal with the cost-of-living crisis.
The bags, put together by the wholesaler, contain a mixture of healthier snacks, drinks, and toiletries to help local families this October half term.
“Enfield is expected to be one of the hardest hit areas impacted by soaring energy bills,” said HR manager for JJ Foodservice, Joanna Florczak. “We are not the biggest business, but we are keen to help, and are very grateful to our suppliers and The Felix Project, who worked with us to donate a total of 207 Helping Hand packs.”
