Christmas is fast approaching and there are many under privileged people that don’t have what they need that and are finding these times very hard. At Lawrence Rand we're looking to help out those that need it the most. Over the coming months we will be collecting food at our offices with the purpose to hand out to local charities once we have suitable donations. We hope the local community will really get behind our cause and help to make a difference to those who need it.
We made our first food drop back in October with help from Lady Bankes Junior School and Coteford Infant School. We'd like to say a massive thank you for the effort the schools put in as well as Tony Wooder and his team at Clean Corners for helping with transportation for dropping off the food.
What type of food should you look to donate?
Food banks say the focus should be on “on whole, unprocessed or minimally processed foods” to help people create healthy meals. Instead of donating foods that are high in salt, sugar and highly processed grains, bring foods that are high in protein, healthy fats and whole grains instead.
Examples of these types of foods are:
- Canned beans
- Peanut butter
- Canned fruit in juice
- Canned vegetables
- Canned tuna in water
- Pasta sauce
- Soups and broths
Food will be collected at our Ruislip Manor and Eastcote offices. If you have any questions regarding the food bank, please contact Laura Butler on 01895 632 211
Thank you in advance
