Here at the foodbank we send clients away with parcels in supermarket bags for life, which are large and strong enough to carry all the food. A family parcel for 5-7 people uses 5 bags. We try to use new bags all from one supermarket because it helps clients feel more comfortable.
As you might imagine, we get through a lot of these bags. If you can, please donate bags for life – it doesn’t matter what supermarket, we are an equal opportunity bag user.
