Tower Hamlets Foodbank are collecting donations of non perishable food outside Wapping’s local Waitrose – the St Katharine Docks branch this weekend.
Foodbank is a national charitable initiative that collects surplus non-perishable food, then redistributes it in packs to local families most in need of it.
The highest levels of child poverty in the whole of the UK are right on our doorstep in E1 where many families struggle to put food on the table and are living below the poverty line.
Foodbank collection at Waitrose St Katharine Docks branch
Volunteers from the Foodbank project will be collecting outside our local St Katharine Docks branch of Waitrose, in E1W this Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th April [view Waitrose map and details].
Tower Hamlets Foodbank is part of a growing national initiative coordinated by the registered charity First Love Foundation.
For more information, to volunteer or to arrange and host your own Foodbank collection please visit www.towerhamletsfoodbank.org.uk.
So please raid your cupboards for unwanted items and donate them to Tower Hamelets Foodbank this weekend – 28th and 29th April and help tell others about the appeal.
