As you know we have supported PECAN the Southwark foodbank based in Peckham for the last year. The ladies popped over at our November meeting to give us some more information on what our donations mean to the foodbank and how we can help over the Christmas period. Here is some more information should you wish to donate food or time.

On Thursday 27th November-Saturday 29th November (between 9am-5pm)- We will be hosting our national supermarket collections at three Southwark based Tesco stores; Old Kent Road, Elephant and Castle and Surrey Quays. Volunteers are needed for 2-3 hour slots.
The last weekend before Christmas, Saturday 20th December- Sunday 21st December – we will be conducting a bag packing event to fundraise for our Christmas Hamper appeal. The Southwark based Tesco stores have invited us to offer shoppers assistance with packing their shopping in exchange for donations towards the Foodbank. This will take place between 11am-4pm and volunteers will be needed to for a maximum of 2 hours.
Also on the last weekend before Christmas, Southwark Foodbank will need a team of volunteers at the Pecan office, packing and preparing the hampers ready to go out on Tuesday 23rd December. On Saturday 20th-Sunday 21st December, volunteers will be needed to assist with packing between 12pm-4pm. It would be advantageous if volunteers could commit to the full shift. Where this is not possible, volunteers should specify their availability.
Please contact the foodbank if you would like to be involved
