Co-op launches Feed a Family Advent Calendar

As families open their Advent calendars, a local co-operative is asking whether you could give as well as receive this year?

Southern Co-op, which supports nearly 50 food banks at its stores across the south of England, is hosting a reverse Christmas Advent calendar starting on 1 December and running until Christmas Eve. Customers will be asked to consider donating a specific food items which will be donated to the local food bank.

Holly Bramble, Community and Campaign Co-ordinator at Southern Co-op, said: "We want to help as many families as possible so have launched this fun and affordable way for customers, colleagues and members to get involvedthis winter.

"We have launched a new funding pot, Feed a Family Fund, for local food banks to get small grants to help cover the costs of essential equipment. We know not everyone can afford to donate money, so this is another way people can help local families and individuals who have fallen on hard times. Hopefully, this will build on the great community spirit we have seen throughout 2020."

Each day will have a different suggested item to donate and include laundry detergent, sauces, pasta, rice, toiletries, biscuits, nuts, tinned fish and meat, jam, breakfast cereal, tea, coffee, tinned desserts, long life juice, instant mashed potatoes, tinned fruit and vegetables, squash and long life milk.

Southern Co-op currently has 78 stores with food bank collection points. Clanfield Co-op store in White Dirt Lane is a designated collection point.
