The Trussell Trust runs the largest network of foodbanks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis. Thirteen million people live below the poverty line and in the last year we gave 1,583,668 three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
Many thanks for thinking about donating to and supporting Gateshead Foodbank.
During December we will also be providing Christmas Hampers for clients as they have been gratefully received over the last few years. You may like to donate an item from the list below as these are the usual things we put in:-
Chocolate biscuits/ chocolate rolls
Mince pies (please check dates)
Pate Longlife /Paste
Christmas Crackers (the ones you pull!)
We put them in large canvas shopping bags as they are easy for clients to carry home with their other food parcels. Advent calendars are also lovely to give people.
We need time to weigh in, sort and deliver all of the extra seasonal donations to our three distribution points and therefore would like to receive donations by the end of November if at all possible.
There are also various drop off points or contact our warehouse team on 07496 840 722 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Our warehouse will be open until 17th December and then closed until Monday 6th January to give our hard working volunteers a well deserved break.
