Christmas Food Bank Appeal

Apr 3, 2020

In Partnership with The Bay Foodbank 

 The Bay Foodbank aims to provide emergency food provision to individuals or families that are experiencing a financial crisis.
This happens when a family has no money because of low income, a bereavement, benefit delays, redundancy, illness or an unexpected bill. People can be referred by churches, doctors, social services or other agencies. 

The uncertainty and strain of 2020 has meant The Bay’s Services are stretched more than ever. In the run up to Christmas, Quorum Park are hoping to collect some essential items for those in need, along with some additional festive cheer to make Christmas more enjoyable for those in need. 

We’re accepting donations in our Christmas Food Appeal up until Friday 4th December, this will allow The Bay Foodbank enough time to distribute the food ahead of Christmas. 

Items to donate include: 

Tinned meat (ham, pork, corned beef)

* Tinned meat & gravy

  (mince, stew, curry, chilli)

* Tinned hotdogs / meatballs

* Sugar

Jam or spread

Tinned rice pudding

Tinned custard

Long grain rice / savoury rice /

   microwave rice

* Crisps / Sweets

* Microwave pots

Pot noodles

 * Tinned potatoes

 * Tinned tomatoes

 * Toilet rolls

 * Toothpaste, soap, shampoo

  * Fruit juice

But we’d also love to collect some Christmas Treats to brighten up someones Christmas. 

Next time you are at the supermarket, please consider adding something to your basket to help those in need. 

We’ll have a collection box set up in Neon Reception along with some of our shared buildings, if you would like to set up a collection from within your building and then have it collected by The Hub Team, let us know and we will make arrangements to collect. Email hub@quorumpark.com to arrange a collection or to ask for copies of supporting marketing materials to promote your internal collection.
