Response from Nationwide:
Thanks for your suggestion about the provision of food bank collection points in branches. One of the things that makes Nationwide special is that our branches are able to get involved in the life of their local community and to support important causes in their local area. In some areas that could be food banks, in others it will be around other causes, reflecting the different nature of the 650+ communities nationwide where we operate. That is what we mean by “building society, nationwide”. If you think that your local branch should collect for the food bank then pop in and have a chat to the team there. Obviously they can’t support every local cause but would always be interested to hear from a local member about causes that matter to them.
