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.
