Save The Food Chain

Christmas Hamper Donation Day

On Sunday 14 December, we’re teaming up with the Sainsbury’s superstore in Camden for our Christmas Hamper Donation Day.

We’ll be asking shoppers to buy a couple of extra items to donate to The Food Chain for us to make into festive hampers for anyone attending Eating Together on either 24 or 27 December. We need a few volunteers to help out at our stand in store and to hand our Hamper List out to people between 11.00am – 5.00pm. You don’t have to stay all day, just an hour or two would be a help! If you want to help in store, or have a car and can help us move everything back to the kitchen at the end of the day, then please contact Fran fran.hodge@foodchain.org.uk

If you’d like to donate some items then either pop along to Sainsbury’s Camden on Sunday 14th or bring your donations to the kitchen before 24th.
