A Vegan milk brand has reached out to hospitals and food banks to help out amid the growing coronavirus crisis.

Panic shoppers have stripped supermarkets bare leaving most food banks struggling for supplies as donations plummet during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to The Guardian, a food bank in London reported a 75% dip in donations from shoppers at branches of Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, while Kirkcaldy food bank  fell behind by a third.

In these dire times, despite being a small business, Rebel Kitchen, a vegan milk brand has donated 14,000 milkshakes to hospitals and food banks to support the ones in need.

In an Instagram post, they also offered to help out other hospitals and food banks in need of similar supplies.
