Wednesday, 18 April 2018

Staff at Greater Anglia are appealing for people in Cambridge to drop off food bank donations at Cambridge rail station.

The station has become a drop-off point to help Cambridge City Food Bank help people in crisis.

Donations of non-perishable, undamaged, in date food can be donated until Thursday 19th April.

To fill a gap in its stocks, the food bank particularly needs jars of pasta sauce, tinned tomatoes, long life milk, long life fruit juice, tinned rice pudding or other long life tinned puddings, small jars of instant coffee, breakfast tea bags, jams and spreads, granulated sugar and cooking oil.

Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Service Manager, Amy Brown, who organised the collection said, “The Food Bank is need of particular items to help it continue the vital support it provides to people in crisis in Cambridge. We really wanted to do something to help and, because so many local people pass through the station every day, we thought the station would be a very convenient, easy place to drop off donations.”
