New vegan only foodbank opens in the UK

Yvonne O'Halloran

Bath Vegan Foodbank, a plant-based incentive, was set up by Helen Wright to help feed the hungry.

The bank will offer only vegan products, though will feed anyone who is experiencing financial hardship, whether they are following a plant-based diet or not.

The food parcels consist of fresh fruit and vegetables, beans, plant milk and a treat.

Wright, who is a long term vegan herself, told Somerset Live: “The foodbank was set up because of the coronavirus pandemic. I wanted to do something to help. There’s no other vegan food bank in the area.

 “One person I spoke to went to another food bank and would take out anything that wasn’t vegan from their food parcel, but it wasn’t always replaced with something vegan.”

 She has also started a fundraiser on Just Giving to help raise funds to feed as many people as possible.

The website states: “The Covid-19 crisis has seen the use of food banks rise to unprecedented levels. Bath Vegan Food Bank is a Vegans Against World Hunger project which has been set up to help people in Bath who are struggling to put food on the table and buy other essential items.”

 “We deliver vegan food and toiletries parcels directly to clients’ homes, currently on a contact-free basis.”
