Croydon R.O.O.T.S. FOOD BANK
We`re due to receive a delivery of food from FareShare first thing tomorrow. Please see the attachment outlining what food we will have to distribute and let me know what food you`d like, confirming that you can collect at The CVA Resource Centre, 82 London Road CR0 2TB tomorrow, Thursday 14th May at 10.30am or 11.00am.
Please note, we`re trying to stagger time slots (collection at 10.30am or 11.00am) to reduce the number of people collecting food at one time.
FareShare message: Please help us to support you by ensuring ALL PLASTIC TRAYS ARE RETURNED after each delivery/collection.
CVA is liaising
with the council on their plans to distribute essential goods and food across the borough. The council is planning to have a council owned venue acting as a secure distribution point in each of Croydon`s 6 localities. We are suggesting that, as a 2nd tier, we have smaller Community Hubs (including the foodbanks) as local distribution venues (such as CVA`s Resource Centre in West Croydon) in each locality where community organisations and volunteers can access essential goods. We`d like you to consider if this is something you`d be able to help with or if you could advise on who we should be reaching out to in your area.
