Our aim is to give out emergency packs of nutritionally balanced food to people in South Liverpool who have been identified as experiencing a crisis situation. The Foodbank Partner or Referral Agent will issue a Foodbank Voucher which can be exchanged for a 3 day emergency supply of food at our Foodbank Centre.
As part of our fundraising efforts we have combined with North and Central Foodbanks for our Every One Counts initiative helping people to stop hunger in Liverpool. We are doing this through Foodbank Friday at Lime Street Station on the last Friday of every month between 7am and 7pm. Last month we raised over £850 and are aiming higher each month. With your help we can reach more people in Liverpool who need our help. Our other fundraiser involves working with Tesco where we collect food (tins, jars, cartons and packets), date it and pack it in boxes to be sorted in the warehouse or sorting area (we have limited access to the warehouse).
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us to discuss how you can help.
We need volunteers at each of 3 large Tesco stores, to help us during our annual 3-day collection. We're asking shoppers to support us by buying an extra item. from a shopping list we provide, and then handing us their donations as they leave the store. One or two friendly smiling faces are required for this role, but also the ability to withstand rejection calmly and politely. One or two other volunteers within the store receive the donations, check the expiry dates and mark these on the items, then place them in crates. We often have stickers to hand out to donors also.
We will be at each store from 9am to 5pm on Thursday 21st November, Friday 22nd November and Saturday 23rd November:- Park Road Extra, Allerton Road Superstore, and Woolton Superstore.
