Eastleigh Basics Bank

Tinned Foods

This year, to celebrate 50 years of the 1st Chandlers Ford Company, we are collecting food for the Eastleigh Basics Bank.

The Basics Bank provides dried or tinned food which is donated by individuals, schools, churches and local businesses to those in need, within the Eastleigh Borough.

When a referral agent issues a client with one of our vouchers, they can bring it in to any of the food bank venues when they are open, to exchange it for up to 5 days of food for the people provided for on the voucher.

This is a great cause and one that doesn’t require too much hard work!

It would be great  if all company members could bring some tins to donate to this worthy cause!

Acceptable foods include:

  • Tinned Meat & Fish
  • Tinned Vegetables
  • Tinned Soup
  • Tinned Fruit
  • Tinned Tomatoes
  • Tinned Rice Pudding
  • Tinned Sponge Pudding
  • UHT/Powdered Milk
  • Pasta/ Rice (1kg)
  • Squash (1litre)
  • Tea (80-160)
  • Coffee (small jar)
  • Sugar (500g)
  • Cereal
  • Instant Mashed Potato
  • Biscuits & Snack Bar

Thank You in advance for helping us to support the Eastleigh Basics Bank.
