Helping Refugees This Christmas

Helping Refugees This Christmas

27 November

 

Last year 15,000 refugees and asylum seekers experienced extreme poverty, including pregnant women and new mothers. At Piccolo, we firmly believe no child should go hungry, so we’re proud to be running our annual One for One campaign this Christmas, to support the work that the British Red Cross does across the UK to support refugee and asylum seeking families with babies and toddlers.

Throughout the whole of December, Piccolo will be donating one baby and toddler meal for every Piccolo product bought in Tesco stores nationwide, to support destitute refugee families with babies and toddlers across the country: last year, the British Red Cross saw a 43% increase in mothers needing food and nappies for their chidren, and we want to do what we can to help.

It’s really easy to get involved – all you need to do is pick up a Piccolo pouch or pot in any Tesco store nationwide or order online and we will donate at least one product to a family in need as a result.

In 2017, Piccolo donated 125,000 meals to disadvantaged children relying on food banks throughout the UK, and this year we’re really proud to be working in support of the British Red Cross to help refugee parents who have already gone through more than many of us can imagine and need a helping hand to make life a little bit better for their families.
