Over the next couple of home matches we are working together with the Dunstable Foodback and collecting donations for the 3 foodbanks in our community.
Over 90% of the food distributed by foodbanks in The Trussell Trust network is donated by the public – that’s why your food donations are absolutely vital to their ability to give everyone referred to them a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food.
The shopping list below shows their most need food items:
Packets of instant Mashed Potatoes.
40s and 80s Tea Bags
Small jars of Instant Coffee
500g bags of Sugar
Savoury Biscuits (Ritz, Cream Crackers, Cheddars etc)
Tinned Sardines & Pilchards (not tuna due to high stocks)
Tinned Meat Meals; Irish Stew, Meatballs , Mince, Chile, Stewing Steak, Curry Etc.
Sponge Puddings (Long life or tinned)
Jam and/or Marmalade
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.
