Will you take the Stowmarket Foodbank Advent Challenge?
Stowmarket Chamber’s chosen charity is the Stowmarket Foodbank. The Foodbank provides emergency food parcels to individuals and families from Stowmarket and the surrounding areas who are in crisis. http://www.livingit.org.uk/foodbank/
Christmas is a time for giving, and we are inviting everyone to join us in creating a “reverse advent calendar”. Every day you add a food item to your box and then donate it to your local Foodbank.
The Stowmarket Foodbank has used their knowledge and experience to create a list of appropriate items for the Advent Challenge. Please check all items have a valid shelf life at least until the end of December, as the Foodbank cannot distribute anything that is past its use by/best before date.
The Chamber will have a collection box at our Christmas coffee morning on Friday 7 December and will do the final Chamber collection at our Chamber Christmas lunch on Friday 14 December at The Shepherd and Dog, Onehouse IP14 3BX.
Of course, the Stowmarket Foodbank is delighted to receive any donations made at their premises at Hillside in Stowmarket from 9am-1pm, Tuesday-Friday. If you cannot get to Hillside then Chamber member Gipping Press (http://www.gippingpress.co.uk) will be delighted to receive your donations, which they will then deliver to the Foodbank.
