Vauxhall Foodbank

Our oldest and most popular task!
Vauxhall Foodbank provide short term food support to families and individuals in crisis. We help them out by sorting food collected from local supermarkets into categories and making sure it is correctly weighed. This task is the dream for all lovers of neatness and order. Feel the calm wash over you as all the tins get sorted and put away. The work we do here would take the voluntary staff hours to do by themselves. We get everything bang tidy in 20 mintes.

130 GoodGymers have supported Vauxhall Foodbank with 76 tasks.

Hmmm

Wednesday 10th April

Written by Adi Gaskell

The session began with the distribution of a giant slab of marge. Less slicing, more lumberjacking. The delivery arrived and a huge load of food was unpacked and stored away.

Helping at the VGCC before Easter

Thursday 28th March

Written by Michael Welsh

As I had some free time, I decided to make the short trip to the Vauxhall Gardens Community Centre (VGCC) with other committed volunteers to help with the food donations for the weekly foodbank.

As we waited for the latest delivery, we started to sort and arrange current food stocks. This included cutting up bread, packing pastries and sorting out vegetables.

When the delivery arrived from the Felix Trust, we sorted and stored the delivery ready in time for the Foodbank to open.

Written by Adi Gaskell

Two deliveries today meant lots of things to unload and unpack. With the sun shining, we made light work of it though.

Wednesday 20th March

Written by Adi Gaskell

On a sunny spring day, I awaited the arrival of the food van, but it was late (once more), so instead I helped distribute some eggs into smaller packages and some noodles.
