After the busiest ever August, supplies have never been lower so Purley Food Hub is seeking your help.
Steve Hunt, the administrator for Purley Food Hub, thanks everyone for their ongoing support and writes,
“After the busiest ever August at the Food Hub with 2,300 meals provided to people in crisis – and close to 20,000 meals this year so far – our stock controller Louise Willmer reports worryingly that our food stocks have never been as low as they are now.
So, as we move into autumn and the build-up to Christmas, we are in urgent need of extra donations of food and toiletries…
Specifically, in September we are asking for long life whole milk, small bags of sugar, strawberry and raspberry jam, tinned ready meals, tins of red kidney beans, jars of pasta sauce and packet soup.
This month’s food list also includes small packs of tea bags, tinned dessert fruit and rice pudding, packets of sweet biscuits and small bottles of squash. Non-food items especially needed are washing up liquid and non-bio washing tablets/sachets.”
Please do what you can to support the work of the Purley Food Hub. We are happy to accept donations of any items at any of our meetings.
Purley Food Hub is a registered charity, keen to receive donations to support their work.
It serves people in need in Croydon, not just the immediate Purley area.
Purley Food Hub is particularly seeking the following items this month:

Purley Food Hub also welcomes financial donations to support their work. Financial donations are used to buy special items needed, including formula milk, nappies and sanitary items as well as pre-paid bus fares for clients to make the trip home with heavy bags of tinned food.
