Food2You Tesco shop, Wednesday edition

Wed 27 Jan 09:00 am
Tesco Extra, Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, London, SE16 7LL
Help this fantastic organisation

Are you available to help our friends at Food2You on a Wednesday morning in Surrey Quays? This is a fun task that will make a big difference!

What's involved?

  • Meet Food2You team at Tesco in Surrey Quays between 9-11am
  • Pick up a shopping list and head into the store to find the items
  • Bring these back to the team, where together, you will double check the items before they are boxed to go through the till

ON ARRIVAL

  • If you arrive and there is a queue, go to the front and tell them you are volunteering with Food2You/Age UK and they will let you in
  • Walk through the store to the far end. In between the alcohol and the bakery section there is a big double white door. Go through the door, turn left, and Terry and the team should all be in there
  • If you can't find the way, look out for shoppers in Tesco with red clipboards, that say 'I'm shopping for local older people' on the back, and they will be able to point you in the right direction!

Food2You is a shopping delivery service provided for older people through Age UK. We are excited to be able to get involved, with this task now a weekly activity on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

You will, of course, need to adhere to social distancing rules, wear a mask and gloves and take direction from the Food2You team.

Transport Pret leftovers to a homeless charity

Wed 20 Jan 17:55 pm
Pret A Manger, London Bridge Station, Railway Approach, London, SE1 9SP
Help put otherwise wasted food to good use 🥪

Bright Morning Star Prisons and Homeless Outreach help to rebuild, support and elevate the lives of the most vulnerable people on the street and at their Walk-In Centres. They provide basic and immediate physical and emotional help to the public, and provide a free counselling service.

We've been asked to help with transporting leftovers from Pret A Manger in London Bridge Station (opposite the National Rail trains), Station Approach, SE1 9SP to Lola who distributes the food at 3 Hermes Court, Southey Road, SW9 0PF. Here's a map - it's a 5km run/ride.

If you go in and say you're collecting food for Bright Morning Star Prison and Homeless Outreach, they should give you the leftovers! There may be quite a lot so just take what you can :)


🎒Please bring a backpack/panniers to transport the food (plastic bags might be useful too as the bags the pastries etc are in can be greasy!).

🤿Please bring a mask to wear in the shop

We need 3 people to sign up to transport the food - you can either run or ride, together or separately. If there are any problems, please call Lola on 07492079197 or 07946288144.

Any questions? Email me 👉 markgilyead@goodgym.org

Thank you 🙏 and hope it goes well!
