Each year Kinderkids Daycare in partnership with the North Belfast Advice Partnership organises a food drive to help people in the run up to Christmas.  This year they will once again be collecting items for the North Belfast Food Bank.   The purpose is to help local families and individuals who are struggling by providing them with some basic supplies.  If you would like to contribute to our collection it would be greatly appreciated.  All you have to do is bring one or two of the following items listed below to any of the Ashton’s buildings, where staff will take the items from you.  Once collected we will bring them to the emergency food bank providing much needed support for many families in North Belfast.  Suitable food items include:

  • Rice/pasta/noodles
  • Jar of sauces – chilli/curry/Bolognese
  • Soups
  • Jams
  • Sugar/tea/coffee
  • Tins of potatoes/peas/carrots/beans
  • Super noodles/pot noodles
  • Tins of fruit/creamed rice/custard/jelly (for kids)
  • Diluted juice
  • Cereals
  • Tins of tuna/ham
  • Long life milk
  • Toiletries
  • Shower gels

The closing date for items being received is the 14th December 2018.

Kind Regards and Merry Christmas!
