percipio.london: Food bank advent 2022
Why we did it
Each year the Percipio team like to support a charitable cause. Christmas 2022 we wanted to focus on the UK’s food poverty crisis. We like to address what is the now, and the reality is that people are struggling to afford food, and other basic household items, due to the cost of living crisis.
This infographic shows the great impact of the rise of the cost of living in the UK and how it’s putting pressure on food banks and those who use them.
What we did
We created a food bank advent calendar; we allocated an item to each day in December leading up to Christmas. Once all the items on the list had been collected/bought we then donated them to our local food banks.
