A number of members are asking for your help on behalf of the food banks in Walton.
Yes food banks in Walton, part of Elmbridge, one of the richest areas in the world – ridiculous isn’t it? Unbelievable but true – hunger doesn’t care where you live.
After we have stuffed ourselves full with copious amounts of food, on the 10th December, that, fortunately, we can afford, we have arranged to deliver much needed items to the food banks. Below is a list of items specifically requested by the Walton food bank and if you are attending the lunch please bring what you can to add to the pile we hope to have.
If you aren’t coming but wish to donate something please deliver it to either Waitrose, Hersham or Sainsburys, Walton, both receiving areas are at the front of the store, in Sainsburys case near Starbucks. Alternatively the food bank donation point is at Faulkners Road, Hersham, Surrey KT12 5JB – Open Wednesdays 10-12pm.
They accept any non-perishable food but are particularly keen on:
Urgently needed food items :
- Tinned meat
