Southend Foodbank are part of a pilot for a brand new, free app that aims to support foodbanks to fight hunger in the UK.
The app came about after students from a Southend school came up with the idea, and then in conjunction with Southend Foodbank, a local company donated their time and expertise to build and develop it.
The app is only available in Southend at the moment, and we need your help by testing the app to iron out any glitches before it is launched further afield.
Please can you do the following things;
1. Download the app here https://bankthefood.org
2. Register yourself on the app and select us as your local foodbank (using the postcode finder)
3. Like and share bankthefood facebook page here
The app cleverly links food banks with shoppers so when you are shopping in one of our Southend supermarkets, you should be alerted of the provisions they need.
It’s completely free, and completely safe (uses gold standard data protection).
If you have any feedback on the app, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or send a message via the Facebook page
