We like to say a massive Thank You to everyone who donated, volunteered and Tesco for another fab collections.
We saw some incredible donations from people in the community – eg people donating whole trollies of food, cash donations, Church groups volunteering their time and cars to help etc. A sincere thank you because with your support we can continue giving vital help when someone is hit by something like illness, redundancy or an unexpected bill.
Tesco’s generous customers at Goodmayes/Dagenham has provided an incredible 3600meals during the eighth Neighbourhood Food collection.
The collection took place between the 30th June and 2 July 2016, in partnership with Tesco and charity partners, The Trussell Trust and Fareshare. For many people, emergency food is just the first step in helping them access other services and support which can help get their lives back on track, so the importance of a food donation in helping someone overcome a crisis cannot be underestimated.

In 2015-16 Dagenham Foodbank provided 1249 three days emergency food supplies to local people in crisis.
