Facebook post 2nd August 2021
💜💙This Saturday we were visited by more families than in the last few weeks, as the pressure of the summer holidays takes effect.
💜💙Thankfully, we have been able to support families with activity booklets, extra juices and snacks, thanks to the generosity of our supporters.
💜💙However we are running a little low on some items this week.
Please note, we are not at the foodbank on Wednesdays in August.
We welcomed 9 new households to Finchley Foodbank.
This week and are short of:
- tinned sardines/mackerel
- tinned vegetables, particularly sweetcorn
- healthy snacks, such as crackers, dried fruit, nuts, cereal bars and small juices.
- cooking oil, maximum 1 litre bottles
- egg boxes, particularly for 12 eggs
We have enough of everything else for this week, so if you can concentrate on these items that would be fabulous, so that we are able to give all of our clients these basic items.
Every donation makes a difference, big or small. Please check your donations are in date as we have vulnerable clients.
We are able to accept donations from members of the public on Friday 12-3pm in the church hall behind St Mary's Church, 279 High Road East Finchley N2 8HG.
Collection points are also available in the Sainsburys Local High Road East Finchley N2 and Martyn Gerrard 365 Regents Park Road N3.
Please observe the 2 metre distance rule whilst on the premises and try not to touch anything. To the left of the church is a drive way, walk down it and leave your donation on the table ahead of you. Please don't come inside the hall.
