Councillors Beverley Momenabadi and Linda Leach teamed up with Morrison’s in Bilston in a bid to help fight food poverty.

It comes as the supermarket announced nationally it would give away 60,000 pizza-making kits across the UK during half term.

The councillors stepped forward to identify families in their wards – Eccleshall and Bilston North – to receive the pizza-making kits.

Now the supermarket has announced it will also donate a selection of Easter eggs to dozens of families who are most in need in those areas.

Councillor Linda Leach, who represents Bilston North, said: “We’re so grateful to the community champion at Morrison’s in Bilston, Lana, who has enabled us to support families and residents in our wards who are struggling.

“We know that food poverty is an issue and, what’s more, children can have fun at home learning how to cook these pizzas.”

Councillor Momenabadi, who represents Ettingshall, said: “We are working with the local schools and families in the area to identify children who might not receive a chocolate treat this Easter.

“Linda and I will be dropping off these Easter eggs to youngsters in both our wards to add a little egg-citement this spring!"
