Last call for Foodbank

24 April 2015

Final donations before end of season please

This Saturday, as at every other home game at The Den this season, will see the Peckham Foodbank collecting again by the Blue Bus before kick-off.


Remember this is your last chance to donate something before the end of the season, so please remember to put something in your bag before you set off. Peckham Foodbank has fed thousands of people since April 2012 and saw a sharp increase in the number of families turning to them for help over the past year.
 
So far your generous support has seen on average 50kg of food donated to those in need at each home game. 

"At our food banks we're shocked by the stories," said Chris Mould, Executive Chairman of the Trussell Trust.


"We're moved by their determination to fix it themselves. That's why so many have been going regularly without meals by the time they reach a food bank.
"Making ends meet is a precarious business for those on low incomes. It only takes an unexpected bill or rise in the cost of food to push people over the edge...all sorts of people."
Items currently needed include 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.
