Bring a tin or two to the Peckham FoodbankThe recent cold weather has meant higher costs on fuel to keep warm and for those in difficulty heightened the need for donations to the Peckham Foodbank, who will be collecting again by the Blue Bus before kick-off on Friday night.
So far your generous support has seen hundreds of kilos of food and toiletries, including nappies, shampoo and toothpaste, donated to those in need amongst our local community.
With extra heating bills due to the adverse weather there is no more crucial time to make a donation.
Food banks help people who've lost their jobs, single parents, business owners whose customers aren't paying on time and families where two jobs just aren't enough.
Items currently needed include nappies, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, tinned meat, UHT milk, sugar, fruit juice (cartons), soup, pasta sauces, sponge pudding (tinned), tomatoes (tinned), cereals, rice pudding (tinned), tea bags/instant coffee, instant mash potato, rice, vegetables (tinned), fruit (tinned), biscuits or snack bars. Items not needed at the moment are baked beans and pasta.
