This Saturday we will be having a food collection day at our local Asda Superstore. Between 9.30 and 4.30 we will be attempting to encourage members of the public to purchase items to donate to us. 90% of food donated to Trussell Trust foodbanks is from members of the general public, so these days are very important for us.
We require 3 metric tonnes of food to be stored in our Food Warehouse even before we open our doors to clients. This on paper does not seem like much but in reality is equivalent to over 6000 tins of food. This amount of food will allow us to serve clients for at least the first month. We then won't have to worry about food collections for a while and completely focus on our clients.
On Saturday we need volunteers willing to give up one or two hours of their time to help us hand out flyers and collect food. If you are interested in any way please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
