Foodbank Favourites

Main Stock required in order of popularity:

Every week, we bulk buy the following items for both Bow and Bethnal Green Foodbanks, so every item you donate saves us cash. We typically give 3-4 days worth of food per person, approximately £20 for a family with children. Please give what you can, even just a few items makes a difference. If you have the opportunity to organise a larger food collection for us from your school, apartment block or workplace, or set up a weekly collection point, please get in touch. Thanks for all your help.
