Valentine’s Day Coffee Morning

On Thursday 16th February we held our Valentine’s day coffee morning to bring a bit of cheer to our Thursday Food bank. 

Alongside the usual spread of food from our great suppliers’ was an extra table serving hot drinks to all who wanted them and tables for them to sit, drink and chat. The food bank, as always, was well attended and because of the Valentine’s theme we had a chance to spend more time with our users and for them to talk to each other and provide supportive words and a bit of light relief from the daily grind.

We’d like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers as well as representatives from Newham Council (pictured with volunteers), for attending and making it such a lovely day. But most importantly we’d like to thank all our food bank users for coming and warming us and each other with their wonderful smiles and conversations that show, our community cares. 

Thanks to our partners: Lottery Community Fund,  City Harvest, Felix , Newham Food Alliance and ELBA
