Today Eleanor and I headed back to East End Women's foodbank for our weekly mission with this great organisation. We had a busy start, with 5 delivery drivers arriving to pick up their food parcels within the first 30 minutes. This equated to 132 bags of food!! Luckily we had one of the lovely staff members, Rebecca, to help us with the toiletries! After the crazy start, we had a bit more time to pack the 48 ambient food bags and get the next orders ready for collection. With about 20 bags left to pack, the supply of regular milk ran out so we moved on to 'sproud', a pea protein plant alternative milk! To finish off, we restocked the tables in the supply room.

Another enjoyable task at the foodbank!
