That people are continuing to donate food and money to support the Community FoodBox during this time is of great credit to our community. However, our local FoodBox is asking for more food donations in particular, as the need for these supplies is greater now than ever.
If you are in a position to donate food items then do please refer to the information listed below.
There are collection points in Morrisons and one in the Coop by the University on Boston Manor Rd, plus you can take your donations to the FoodBox premises and leave them outside when it’s open Tuesday – Friday 10am to 1pm, Saturday 10am to 12pm. The Hounslow Community FoodBox premises are located at Brickfield Community Centre, Brickfield Close, Brentford TW8 8JN.
All food items would be most welcome as stocks are now very, very low as a result of a dramatic increase in referrals, most of whom are being referred for the first time and are now self-isolating. The Community FoodBox now delivers all food parcels and has been recruiting many new volunteer drivers to provide this service. If you have any spare face masks they would be most welcome too for use by volunteers.
Hounslow Community FoodBox are grateful for all non-perishable, frozen and fresh food donations, but the regular food items required include:
- Tinned & fresh potatoes or mash
- Tinned meat – casseroles, corned beef, ham
- Tinned Fish – tuna, salmon, sardines
- Tinned vegetables – potatoes, sweet corn, peas, carrots, beans
- Tinned and fresh fruit
- Pasta sauces
- Tomato sauce
- Small cooking oil
- Tinned soup
- Baked beans
- Tinned custard
- Rice Pudding
- Long life milk
- Baby food & milk
- Pet food and non-food items such as toiletries, cleaning products and nappies are also very welcome
