Can Drive for the Aberdeen North Foodbank

Rated 5/5 (1 person). Log in to rate.

On Monday, 4th December, Radar will team-up with the Gender Equality/Feminism Society and the Politics and Debating Society to hold a can drive for the Aberdeen North Foodbank (part of the Trussell Trust foodbank network). The can drive appeal will be held on Union Way, near the Union office, from 9am until 5pm.

The foodbank urgently needs;

  • non-perishable food (canned foods, especially fruit) 
  • UHT milk 
  • cereal
  • long-life fruit juice
  • tea bags 
  • biscuits 
  • nappies, baby wipes and baby food
  • sanitary products

The foodbank is in desperate need of donations, especially in the run-up to the festive period, so that people in the local area do not go hungry. 

They provide emergency food parcels, which consist of three days worth of nutritionally balanced, non-perishable food, to local people in crisis.

Once the food and products have been donated to the team on Monday, it will all be given to the foodbank who will sort and store the food, and pack it into boxes for those in need. 

There will also be donation buckets for the foodbank and other charities on the table on the day.

Please bring in any donations, every contribution, no matter how big or how small, will be greatly appreciated and will go a long way for those who need it most.

If you are interested in helping the foodbank they are always looking for volunteers either phone them on 01224 651000 or email info@aberdeennorth.foodbank.org.uk

Or you can text to donate money to the Trussell Trust anytime. To donate text FBUK12 £2 (or £5 or £10) to 70070.
