Express & Star and Shropshire Star

Feed A Family


The Feed a Family campaign has become an annual fixture for the Express & Star and Shropshire Star, in which both titles team up with foodbanks from across the region for a major push to stock up supplies ahead of Christmas.

The campaign was a success, with foodbanks involved saying they saw a big difference in donations, demonstrating the power and reach of local news brands.

The campaign helped readers with what was best to donate and also provided regular updates and features for the campaign. The features focused on those who had volunteered their time for foodbanks, as well as also who benefitted from the support.

For the first time, the campaign was launched in summer 2022 instead, as a way to address the cost-of-living crisis for readers and to help support struggling families.
