and live on Freeview channel 276
The company is a leading UK fish supplier that has been supplying frozen-at-sea fish for 42 years.
Food Banks are among the organisations suffering during the ongoing cost of living crisis, as expenses continue to rise to keep warehouses and distribution centres open.
It has coincided with an increased demand for food and food banks by people struggling to feed themselves this winter and has left many food banks in desperate need for help.
Nathanya Laurent, development manager at Leeds South and East Food Bank, said: “We are thrilled to have Collins Seafoods by our side. With demand going through the roof and lots of unknowns to navigate, knowing we have the security of a regular donation will help us to build our resilience and maintain a robust service during these very uncertain times.”
As well as a monthly donation, the company plans to help the food banks with future fundraising projects and work with them to spread awareness and the importance of food banks.
Craig English, managing director at Collins Seafoods, said: “These are very challenging times for everyone and we felt there couldn’t be a better time to offer our support and help people in all kinds of circumstances.”
