Nantwich Food Festival announces Spring Drop-off and Go collection

Following the resounding success of the Christmas Drop-off and Go collection, Food Festival volunteers have organised a Spring Drop-off and Go collection event, again at Brine Leas School.

Locals can drop off all their donations at Brine Leas School car park on Saturday March 27th between 10am-1pm, when Nantwich Food Festival volunteers will be there to receive donations in support of their friends at the Foodbank. Permission for the event has been granted by the police.

The help of our community couldn’t come at a better time, as Emily, the Foodbank warehouse manager tells us that stocks are very low, and the demand on Foodbank support is incredibly high.

This time the list of requests for donations is much less specific than at Christmas.

Items Needed:

  • Tinned gammon or other tinned meats
  • tinned salmon, tinned tuna
  • long life juice, long life milk
  • sponge puddings, tinned fruit
  • jars of coffee
  • washing powder, cleaning solutions – but no bleach please
  • shampoo, conditioner, deodorant

    This time we will not be collecting clothes.

It is important to note that the Foodbank cannot accept the following:

  • Fresh dairy goods, meat or fish or fruit, vegetables or any items that require refrigeration.
  • Half used or open packets cannot be accepted nor can anything past it’s best before/use by date; the Foodbank cannot accept any alcoholic drinks.

Anyone wanting to donate money, may do so via the Foodbank website.

Residents from Nantwich and the surrounding area have already proven their generosity, so we hope that we can all rise to another challenge in support of those in greater need than ourselves.

Please give generously. Thank you.
