Rebel Kitchen has donated 14,000 milkshakes to hospitals and food banks across the UK to support those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
Panic buying has left supermarket shelves in the UK bare with shoppers struggling to find essentials. Sadly those most in need have been badly affected by the crisis with health and charity workers struggling to buy the items they need and donations to food banks dropping dramatically.
Keen to help those most in need, vegan milk brand Rebel Kitchen has donated a staggering 14,000 delicious dairy-free milkshakes to hospitals and food banks across the UK and has extended the offer to help more hospitals and food banks in need donations.
Taking to Instagram to share the news, the company asked its followers for help connecting them to more hospitals and food banks who would benefit from extra supplies.
“We recently made the decision to donate 14,000 of our Mylk Shakes to hospitals and food banks nationwide, and now we’re taking more suggestions to try and help as much as possible,” the company said.
“Despite being a small business, we wanted to act like Rebels, setting an example and supporting those in need.”
Many stories of hope and communities coming together have emerged during the crisis, with the likes of coconut oil brand Lucy Bee donating thousands of its natural soap bars to charities across the UK, helping to protect against the spread of COVID-19.
To combat the issue of stockpiling leaving vulnerable people without the necessities they need to survive, a vegan group in Worthing has launched the Worthing Vegan Food Bank Network in an effort to help people cope during the ongoing pandemic.
