Stock from Nisa’s annual exhibition is a foodbank filler

Donations from Nisa’s annual trade show to foodbanks across Coventry has led to more than 6,000 meals being made available to people struggling to feed themselves.

Once again, Nisa teamed up with the Trussell Trust to ensure as much product as possible from the Stoneleigh exhibition went to those most in need.

Large quantities of stock from Nisa’s Store of the Future Evolution shop and produce from many of the supplier’s stands were collected at the close of the two-day exhibition last week.

This year saw the collection for Coventry Foodbank hit 3,165 kgs, equating to 4,795 meals whilst local Coventry charity Anesis collected a further 950 kgs which created 1,439 meals. The total donation reached 4,115 kgs across the two charities, equivalent to a massive 6,234 meals.

Hugh McNeill, Coventry Foodbank Project Manager, said: “We had a fantastic collection and managed to get all the food out to our foodbanks centres and other supporting charities in the city.

“The collection has become a vital part of our food provision in April and gives us a substantial donation of stock leading up to summer time.

“We are indebted to Nisa for their ongoing support and allowing us to partner with them each year.”
