Do you have sufficient food?
Can you spare some for those who don’t?
Visit our Pop-up Food Bank
In these difficult times, neighbours are asking how they can help families/vulnerable people in our community who cannot afford food. As our friends and neighbours lose their incomes, the need is greater than ever.
In conjunction with the Greenwich Food Bank, we have organised a pop-up food bank to make it easier for you to donate.
Just drop donations in the front garden of 59 Delafield Road every Tuesday, 2pm – 3pm.
Please do not bring items outside of this time.
Any tinned or packaged item can be donated (no baked beans please) but preferably the essentials listed below. Please share this information with others and encourage them to be generous.
Please note that the Government’s instructions must be strictly observed:
- make this part of your daily exercise, not an extra trip
- keep 2 metres apart if others are donating
- no congregating – drop your item and leave the area immediately
- do not visit if you are self-isolating or in a high-risk category
- if you come into contact with any surface wash your hands immediately
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.
We are liaising with QE hospital regarding their donation scheme to NHS staff.
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.
