Wimbledon Foodbank Collection

Wimbledon Foodbank

The Foundation is again supporting Wimbledon Foodbank this year by organising a food collection at the forthcoming home games on Sat 20th January v Blackpool and Sat 10th Feb v Northampton Town.   The foodbank is based in the High Path area of Wimbledon and works to support local families in need.

“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”

Foodbank 2.png

We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

https://wimbledon.foodbank.org.uk/

The Foundation would encourage supporters to have a post Xmas clear out of food cupboards at home and bring any spare items to these fixtures and deposit them at the Foundation inflatable in the collection boxes provided.  The Foodbank requested that we provide this support at this time of year, rather than a Christmas collection, as their stocks are lower at this point.

 

The foodbank is particularly looking for the following items:

At this time of year we need all the basic Food items such as:

·         Cereal

·         Soup

·         Sugar

·         Rice

Foodbank.png

·         Pasta sauce

·         Beans

·         Tinned meat

·         Tinned vegetables

·         Tea/coffee

·         Tinned fruit

·         Biscuits

·         Squash
