Segro donates rent-free warehouse space to support local food banks during covid-19 pandemic.

Three food redistribution charities that will be provided with rent-free space are: City Harvest, who will take space at the Acton Park Estate; Felix Project, a free door-to-door service, who take space at Great Cambridge Industrial Estate, Enfield; and FareShare, the UK’s longest running food redistribution charity which will take space at Deptford Trading Estate.

Neil Impiazzi, Partnership Development Director at Segro, said: “We know these food redistribution charities are doing incredible work by providing a vital food distribution service to vulnerable members in our communities that are suffering as a result of the Coronavirus crisis.

It is a service they provide all year round, but their drive and determination to support those residents most affected should be applauded.  We would urge anyone who is able to make a donation of essential food products to their local foodbank.”

Last week Segro reported that around 25% of its existing tenants were now in talks about deferring or altering rent arrangements as a result of pressure from the coronavirus outbreak.
“We are currently working, on a case by case basis, with customers across the group representing approximately a quarter of our total headline rent requesting appropriate relief, primarily through reprofiling the timing of rental payments,” Segro Chief Executive David Sleath said.
