Food Prep

Redbridge Report written by Linda Sharman

Ed and Linda arrived at Frenford FoodBank earlier than advertised and started sorting the supermarket delivery. Pretty soon joined by AJ who got busy unpacking packages that had not been collected from three weeks ago. Ed moved on to sorting the scouts delivery when Herman (a surprise last minute decision to sign up) arrived. Herman hadn't been notified of our earlier start time but it didn't matter as we then had another supermarket delivery come in so we all got involved in sorting that one out.

Confident that everything was prepped ready for Thursdays picking and packing we went on our merry way... forgetting to take photos...again ๐Ÿ™ˆ so enjoy these old ones ๐Ÿ˜

Sugar and Spice and Sticky Rice

Redbridge Report written by Linda Sharman

Its always a lovely surprise when GGers are available during the day in the middle if the workjng week so it was great to see Kathryn and Herman join Ed and Linda at Frenford Foodbank.

One of the sachets of microwave rice had split spilling sauce onto others attracting flies and other pests so, equipped with soapy water, a bunch of tea towels and a pack of antibac. wipes, Kathryn, Linda and Alison(friend of Frenford and now GoodGym) set to work washing, drying and wiping. As the crates were stacked on top of each other and had holes in the bottom we thought it best to clean all three crate loads - especially as they'd had a previous mouse issue.

In the meantime Herman and Ed set about sorting and storing two trolley loads of food donations, they then set about reorganising and restocking the shelves laid bare from last weeks sessions. Ed had made some sides and fronts for the shelves to prevent pasta and rice avalanches which proved very effective. Once done with the clean up job the rest of us joined them and although we ran a little over time we were all happy that we got the job done.

New System Go!

Redbridge Report written by Linda Sharman

There was a little trepidation about this session as the new system at Frenford Foodbank involves twice the number of packages and the new timing of the session meant we lost a couple of our regular experienced pickers and packers ๐Ÿ˜ข

The session got off to a good start with the arrival of our newest recruit Irena. Irena made it across the border from Havering and soon got to work proving to be a valuable member of the team with minimal instruction. Welcome to Good Gym Irina.๐Ÿ˜ŠTalking about valuable members of the team our reliable hard working regulars Tina and Herman soon arrived bright and cheerful ready to tackle the mammoth task. ๐Ÿ˜

Happily, despite things not being in the usual place and twice as much to do, things went quite smoothly. It was much easier with the centre being less congested. Although we used up all the allotted time and it was tiring, it was good to get it done all in one session.

All Change Please

Redbridge Report written by Linda Sharman

A change in Frenford Food Banks delivery schedule called for more space to store deliveries. Additional shelves were installed which meant a lot of stock shifting was needed as well as the usual Supermarket delivery sort and store.

Whilst the usual "Silver Shelf Fillers" Alison (local Church Volunteer) plus Linda and Ed are capable of doing the job...albeit slowly... they were delighted to be joined by the younger and fitter Herman who undoubtedly made the job a lot easier and quicker.

It would have been even quicker if there had been more of a plan so things didn't have to be moved backwards and forwards so much...my fault...sorry about that Guys ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

Hush A Bye Food Bank

Redbridge Report written by Linda Sharman

It was a happy accident that I mistakenly set the Frenford FoodBank supermarket delivery sort for today instead of Saturday. The task owner suddenly remembered there is a big event going on tomorrow and needed the crates cleared out of the way early anyway. Luckily three of us were ready willing and available.

Instead of the usual hustle and bustle in the centre's foyer and loud catchy dance music coming from the hall the foyer is pretty much deserted during the day on a Friday and there were gentle lullaby sounds from the Mother and Baby group in the hall. The whole atmosphere was serene and soothing as we gently went about our business very quietly chatting so as not to startle the babies. ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿผ

We were so laid back we forgot to take photos so here are some old ones. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚
