food collection 2The team at Bishop Grosseteste University Students’ Union (BGSU) have worked hard to support local Lincoln charity the Nomad Trust by collecting food donations worth over £350.

With BGU students heading home for the summer, the team saw a perfect opportunity to make a difference, encouraging students to use collection boxes placed in every halls kitchen rather than throwing away food they didn’t use.

Their efforts led to a huge variety of donations which were then quality and date checked by staff volunteers from across BGU before being donated to the Nomad Trust.

Being able to both support homelessness efforts in the county and combat the problem of food waste was incredibly exciting for BGSU, Students’ Union Manager Abigail Rogers said:

“Our students are really passionate about supporting the homeless and donating their left over food is a way they can help those who are vulnerable whilst also positively impacting the local community that they have been a part of whilst studying at BGU.”

Part of YMCA Lincolnshire, the Nomad Trust is dedicated to supporting those struggling with homelessness across the county. Accepting the donation from BGSU a spokesperson for the Charity was keen to highlight the positive impact their efforts would have:

“We feed anywhere from 6 to 23 people twice a day so everything that BGSU has donated will get used because donations keep us going on, all year round they are so important. And looking at the amount they’ve brought we will be able to feed a good number of meals which is brilliant.”

Along with the donation to the Nomad Trust, the food collection has also created supplies for BGU’s internal food bank, which helps to support vulnerable students in times of need.

Staff and students at BGU regularly go above and beyond to support important charities around the world. You can find more information on their amazing efforts on our news page.
