WE have a Tesco customer food collection at all three of the Harlow Tesco stores (Edinburgh Way, Church Langley and the Metro in the Harvey Centre) on Thursday 30th November, Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd December and we urgently need volunteers to help us as Harlow Foodbank needs this additional food due to the implementation of Universal Credits in Harlow in July.

To meet the current increased need the foodbank needs 4.5 tonne of donated food each month. The foodbank is currently feeding an average of 287 people each month and 40% of these are children and in August, September and October our referrals were up by 44% compared to the same period last year.

Volunteers at these collections work two hour shifts only giving out foodbank shopping lists to Tesco customers as they enter the shop. Shifts are 09.00-11.00 / 11.00-13.00 / 13.00-15.00 / 15.00-17.00.

We ask volunteers to arrive at the store 10 minutes before their shift commences. We ask that potential volunteers give us their name, contact mobile number and email address when confirming their interest.

Would you please promote this important need and if anyone can help please ask them to ring our office 01279 724515 or email [email protected]
