NEIGHBOURHOOD FOOD COLLECTION 

 

We had an opportunity once again of having our foodbank stand in the lobby of Tesco Barkingside (Cranbrook Road) for the 3-day National Neighbourhood Food Collection (Thursday 30th June to Saturday 2nd July 2016). These events enable us to create awareness of our foodbank project - the community can meet and speak to the volunteers who run foodbank and we can personally thank those who support us.

This summer customers and staff donated an amazing 1.2 tonnes in food and toiletry items along with £453.70 cash donations!

Our sincere thanks and appreciation goes out to everyone who contributed to our cause this weekend.

We also want to give a special mention to Justine (Charity Champion, Tesco Barkingside), our regular volunteers who put in extra hours and the occasional/one-off volunteers - thank you all for making the event happen!

 

If you would like to help out at any of our future events -

please email 'info@redbridgefoodbank.org' for more details

THANK YOU to Sheldon and Gez from our local company BOC Gas and Gear, Woodford Trading Estate for your generous donations of plastic carrier bags! This is a great help to our foodbank service as we use regular carrier bags to pack our clients' food parcels. 

THANK YOU to all the Schools, Churches, Community Groups, businesses, organisations, families and individuals who continue to support foodbank with generous donations. Your donations of food, toiletry items and time - enable us to run foodbank effectively and provide a service in the community that supports individuals and families in desperate need.
