THANK YOU!

Thank you so much for your generous donation to the Vauxhall foodbank, following your recent collection. You gave 90.3 kg of food (enough food for approximately 136 meals), which will be used to feed some of the poorest people in our local area.

Since Vauxhall foodbank opened at the end of June 2011 we have given out over 44,694kg of food / 67,041 meals to over 6,935 people. All of this food has been collected from organisations like yours, churches, schools and other groups from the local community. The majority has come from the customers of Sainsburys Nine Elms who donate to our volunteers standing outside the store on a monthly basis.

 

 

Every foodbank client is assessed by a frontline professional (doctors, social workers, children centre outreach workers, etc) who then give them a foodbank vouchers to be exchanged for 3 days worth of food (10 balanced meals) at our foodbank Café based in the Vauxhall Christian Centre, 105 Tyers Street. As well as the free food, our clients can expect a friendly 
welcome and a listening ear and we aim to signpost them wherever possible to other services and agencies that can help them deal with the root causes of their crisis.

The work that we do wouldn’t happen without donations like yours, so we really can’t thank you enough. If you would like to find out more about the foodbank or arrange a visit to the Café please visit christchurchlondon.org/foodbank or email foodbank@christchurchlondon.org.

Kind Regards,

Faith Purcell & the Vauxhall foodbank Team
