On Sunday 1 October, we will celebrate this year’s Harvest and Richmond AID, which supports around 50 clients/families each week, will be grateful for your Harvest Boxes. Food poverty is a huge issue for disabled people who often have to make a choice between heating or eating, especially now in the current cost of living crisis so please bring your boxes to either the 8am Holy Communion Service, 9am Morning Worship or 10am Family Parade Service.

Items most in need are :

  • long-life food: long life milk/juice, tinned meat/fish/veg/fruit/pulses, pasta sauces, jam/marmite/peanut butter, coffee (small jars), custard, rice pudding
  • cleaning items such as washing up liquid, bleach and other hygiene products
  • toiletries: shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, hand wash, body lotion, toothpaste

Elsewhere, The Richmond AID Surplus.2.U food stall is held every Wednesday, 10.30-11.30am at the front of their office at the Disability Action and Advice Centre, 4 Waldegrave Road, Teddington, TW11 8HT. We welcome our clients to a safe and familiar place where they can choose surplus food provided by our partners (Richmond Foodbank, Felix Trust, City Harvest, LIDL Fulwell, Cavan Bakery and Surplus to Supper) and kind donations from our community.
