Harvest Arrangements

We would like to ask for your co-operation with harvest donations.

If you are able to support us then it is essential that:

1.  If your church or organisation intends to make a Harvest Donation to Foodbank, please let us know as early as possible in advance by e-mail to info@chelmsford.foodbank.org.uk so that we can support you as you support us.

2.  We will then respond by sending you out posters, special harvest shopping lists and a questionnaire asking for the date of your harvest event, contact person etc.

3.  From your organisation’s response we can rough out provisional delivery dates for you to bring donations..

This will all help us with our planning of volunteers to receive your gifts, to make collections if necessary and/or save your time when bringing items to us by not having everyone come at the same time!  Your co-operation is very much appreciated.
