Giving To Enfield People In Need This Easter

2nd March 2022

The North Enfield Foodbank’s AdLent Calendar Collection is the perfect way to give to those in need, this Easter.

Since, our last Reverse Advent Calendar Campaign at Christmas, most of us are familiar with how this works, where you get to give something each day and we let you know what we need. We know that Lent usually is a time many people give up things, however with AdLent you can also make it a time to give!

This idea has been inspired by the Trussell Trust, enabling local communities to give to those most in need, in the run up to Easter.

To take part in our AdLent Calendar Collection all you have to do is use the poster attached, to collect and donate our 40 most needed items, starting on Wednesday 2nd of March and running until Saturday 16th April. The poster can be accessed here: AdLent Calendar Foodbank 2022

If you are unable to get any of the items, you can simply replace anything you can’t get hold of with an item of your choice. The 40 items that you are able to donate, will then become part of food parcels for those in crisis in Enfield.

On Saturday 16thof April our team will be at our foodbank centre ready to receive these donations, but you can also donate these items, by placing them in the donation bins at any of our supermarket collection points. We can also accept these items any time before this date Рso feel free to donate earlier if you can! If you want to bring them the week after that is also great!

We’re so grateful to the Enfield community for the continued support of our Foodbank, without our local community we wouldn’t have been able to feed the 2180+ people that have already needed our help this year.

For more information about this collection or anything else please contact us.
