Meaningful Chocolate Ltd: Turning Black Friday On Its Head


Over the last month people who shop on our site have have made nearly 500 donations through our Donate to a Food Bank scheme. Hundreds of Real Advent Calendars and boxes of Host of Angels have been delivered.


Pictured here is the second batch of boxes being delivered. We also have a video below.


You can donate directly to a food bank here <https://meaningfulchocolate.cmail19.com/t/r-l-jdihidhy-ktiuijlikr-r/> or donate a final box of Host of Angels here. <https://meaningfulchocolate.cmail19.com/t/r-l-jdihidhy-ktiuijlikr-y/> Tesco have food bank donation points in their supermarkets so you can buy a Real Advent Calendar in Tesco and make a donation there this weekend.


823,145 emergency food parcels were given to people in the UK between April and September 2019. It was the busiest half-year period for food banks in the Trussell Trust’s network since the charity opened. This is a 23% increase on the same period in 2018.


Please keep those who use food banks in your prayers. It is a very humbling experience to see the work behind the scenes which goes into supporting the most vulnerable people in society at Christmas.


Here is our video...
