Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally (MADL) charity has announced the launch of its first Heart of the Community Awards for 2024.

This year’s awards will be supporting food pantries across the UK with an overall £50,000 fund available for Nisa retailers to nominate local causes. The donations of up to £1,000 per store will help food pantries provide essential food and other supplies to people in need.

The Heart of the Community Awards is a popular funding giveaway through MADL for Nisa retailers. Each year, Nisa retailers nominate local causes that they believe could benefit from a donation. The 50 winning causes are then selected by a panel of judges. MADL is committed to supporting food pantries in their vital work to combat hunger in the UK.

To apply for a donation, interested food pantries should visit their nearest Nisa affiliated retailer to discuss a nomination. Nearest stores can be found by visiting:

Head of charity at Nisa Kate Carroll said: “We are proud to support food pantries across the UK through our Heart of the Community Awards. Food pantries play a vital role in our communities, and we are committed to helping them continue to provide essential assistance to people in need.

“Everyone should have access to good food. Everybody values community. Pantries provide both – and more. Across the UK, 90,000+ people have found friendship, food and freedom through pantry memberships.”
