Since April, CCRA has run a weekly Pop-up Food Bank. This will continue to operate on Tuesday afternoons from 2-3pm from outside 59 Delafield Road until the end of September and we will consult with the Greenwich Food Bank before deciding whether to resume in the autumn/winter.
From October, neighbours who wish to continue supporting the food bank are asked to drop donations at their local supermarket where possible OR make a financial contribution here https://greenwich.
In the meantime, we would like to thank everyone who has contributed since we started on April 14th
We encourage you to continue donating to the food bank. Any tinned or packaged item can be donated (no baked beans please) but preferably the essentials listed below.
Essential Items Needed:
UHT Milk – this is the priority item
UHT Fruit Juice
Instant potatoes (packeted)
Tinned sweet corn
Small jars of coffee
Small packets of tea bags (80s, not 120s)
Boil in the bag rice
Personal hygiene items – unopened shower gel, shampoo, toothpaste, feminine products, etc
We will let you know if the essential list changes.
Alternatively, you can drop an essential item at the food bank at Sainsbury’s Riverside on your next visit. You can also donate money on a one-off or regular basis: https://www.justgiving.com/greenwichfoodbank Thank you for participating in this scheme – your contribution is really appreciated.
