Can you spare some time to help feed people in need this Christmas? Then Camden Foodbank needs you.
From Thursday 21 to Saturday 23 November, we are looking for volunteers to make this Food Collection the biggest one yet.
During the collection customers are encouraged to donate long-life food to help food banks and community groups support people in need at Christmas. Our Partner, Tesco, will top up customer donations by 20% to further support our work.
To make this year’s collection a success volunteers are needed to hand out shopping lists to customers, so they can see the food items most needed by food banks and community groups in their area, and to encourage people to donate.
Emma Revie, chief executive at The Trussell Trust said:
“No one should need a food bank at any time of year – but we know during the lead-up to Christmas our network of food banks see even more people needing help. Food banks will be doing all they can to provide vital emergency support so people don’t face hunger this Christmas. But to make sure there are enough donations, we need your support. Having your support in this year’s Tesco Food Collection will make a real difference – the more people who volunteer, the more food will be collected from generous shoppers, and the better prepared food banks will be to help local people.”
Camden Foodbank will be at Tesco in Colney Hatch from Thursday 21st November until Saturday 23rd November.
We will be collecting the food to help our clients throughout the next few months and would love help from volunteers during these days for 2 hours, or however long you can commit.
