Weʼre Raising £20K For COVID-19 Emergency Essential Supplies | We Need Your Support
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 emergency, the Heston and Cranford community have come together to help feed the vulnerable in our community. This pop up foodbank delivery service is being led by Heston West Big Local and Cranford Community College. The initiative is being supported by our partners Berkeley Academy, Heston Royal British Legion, Heston Action Group, Chartwells, Addison Lee Cabs, Morrisons (Brentford) and Seema Malhotra MP Feltham and Heston.
We have been able to secure the supply of food from Chartwells but we need money to buy the food. Each household is receiving a pack of food to the value of between £40 and £50. £50 will provide a basic food pack including items like rice, pasta, tinned tomatoes, tuna, corned beef, beans, uht milk, bread, cereal, tinned fruit, eggs and toilet roll, for a week.
There are many things to worry about at this difficult time so let’s try and make food something that people do not need to worry about.
Please support this initiative with your kind donations and help the most vulnerable in our community.
