Distribution of 700 food bank eggs begins

More than 700 Real Easter Eggs have been donated to food banks from across the UK.

Our donation scheme, allows donors to purchase a discounted Real Easter Egg  for delivery to food banks, including Trussell Trust distribution centres. 

Distribution of the eggs began in early April with all the eggs set to be delivered by Palm Sunday.

Visiting the Trussell Trust food bank distribution hub in Warrington the Bishop of Warrington, the Rt Revd Beverley Mason, said; "It was great to see so many Real Easter Eggs donated, through the Meaningful Chocolate Company, by churches and individuals.

"It's a scandal that food banks find themselves busier than ever. Those who donate to food banks, the marvellous teams who work for them and those who distribute food are supporting some of the most vulnerable people in society. As we enter Easter and the holiday period it is important to remember and hold in our prayers those families who struggle or are in need."

    I would just like to say how delighted I was to find a real Easter egg ,egg in my local supermarket .I was prepared not to buy Easter eggs this yr because well there is none to buy in my opinion.When I came across these eggs I was so happy I bought 3 one each for my grown grandchildren .And they tell me they were really nice & the chocolate was better than others & indeed I tried it & it was .But for me I best thing ever was that Christians have been left in the wilderness regarding Easter eggs . I came on to your site to seek other meaningful items for I believe Christian events ? I did see a very brief advertisement on TV ,as I was in Tesco they had your eggs . I thank you very much & this means so much .I will pass on the word to the congregation in my Methodist church in Sunderland .
