It’s that time of year when a bit of studio selfie silliness is irresistible
It’s also that time of year when food banks are expecting more people than ever through their doors.
Shout out to the Benztown Radio imaging wizards in LA, once again running their #cans4cans drive. You post a picture of you wearing your “cans” (headphones) and tag it #cans4cans, they’ll donate a can of food to their local food bank. Last year over 900 people took part.
You can find out more about them here and join in too.
Here in the UK, the Trussell Trust is well known for their work setting up and running food banks across the country and we’ve been long-time supporters. This year we’re also popping a few extra things into our trolley each time we shop and will be dropping them off to our local food bank before Christmas.
The Trussell Trust are anticipating a greater demand than ever this year, and figures released last month show the need for food banks in December is increasing year on year. Colder weather increases pressure on people already in crisis with families struggling to cover basics.

They’re asking for donations sooner rather than later in the month to reduce pressure on volunteers at food banks as they work to distribute donations.
