• Chelmsford Foodbank
  • Premiere has supported the Chelmsford Foodbank since it was set up in July 2012.

  • The Foodbank is part of a growing network set up by the Trussell Trust and run by volunteers in towns and cities throughout the UK - there are currently more than 220 in operation.

    Foodbank works with agencies to identify people in crisis who simply cannot afford to buy food. “You are only one pay cheque away from crisis” is a sobering thought for millions of people and with tax and benefit cuts starting to bite recently the volume of people in crisis is growing.

    The charity provides a family with enough food to last them three days and Premiere has been supporting Chelmsford Foodbank in Essex since its launch by providing boxes for packing food parcels.

    The BLUM hinge boxes are the perfect size and are strong enough to hold 20kg. Each month the supervisors on our production floor set aside these boxes for the Foodbank instead of baling them and recycling them. Premiere then ensures they are delivered to Chelmsford.
