TESCO COLLECTION DATES CHANGED TO 28TH & 29TH NOVEMBER
Tesco have changed the food collection to Friday the 28th and Saturday the 29th of November - this means there is NO collection on the 5th and 6th of December.
The collection will be at Tescos in Leatherhead - Please do buy an extra item on the list below to put in the Foodbank donation box!
Here is a list of all the things we are currently running low on:
UHT juice, UHT milk

Leeds Building Society (13 High Street, Epsom KT19 8DA) have a permanent collection point.
This goes with collection points already opened at Tescos (Leatherhead), Sainsburys (Epsom) and Budgens (Stoneleigh). If they don't work for you then you can still drop food at the Generation Resource Centre or most local churches especially Epsom Methodist and Ruxley Church where we run distribution points from. For info please ring 0208 786 8221. Thanks!
Over 4,000 people have now been fed since we started. Incredible!
