Jon Cruddas MP said: “I am incredibly thankful for the vital support Rainham Foodbank offers my constituents, and this event is another excellent example of them giving back and bringing the community together. Every year my office processes numerous referrals to Rainham Foodbank, and I know the extra effort they have put in to ensure that the most vulnerable have not been left without help during the pandemic.”
