Weʼre raising £20,000 to fund up to 500 emergency essential parcels for the most vulnerable families and individuals living in Heston and Cranford due to COVID-19
By Alan Fraser and Serena Lola
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 and Seema Malhotra MP Fetham 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.
