Over a ten-week period, MIS Group has pledged to donate £20,000 in total to twenty UK foodbanks nominated by the public. The campaign, which it has called Food for All will see the company donate £2,000 each week (two charities per week) across the ten weeks to foodbanks up and down the UK in a bid to stamp out food poverty.
Chris McLaughlin, managing director, MIS Active Management Systems, said, “We’re fortunate to have been able to carry on working throughout the lockdown, and we felt that it was important to give something back, so we’re donating to 20 foodbanks nominated by the public in the fight against food poverty in the UK.”
Anyone can put forward a nomination; the only criteria are the foodbank must operate in the UK, have a registered charity number and its own bank account. To find out when nominations will open in your region and how to nominate a foodbank, you can visit the MIS-AMS website or find the company on LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook.
Andy McLaughlin, managing director, MIS Group, said, “We want to make the decision on how to allocate the donations as democratic as possible. MIS staff will vote from a randomly selected set of ten nominations for each region. The foodbanks with the greatest number of nominations for each region will receive the money.”
