We’re collecting for our local foodbank!

The idea is to collect food that people don’t want to take home with them and donate it to our local foodbank. People often buy more food than they need whilst on holiday and don’t always use or even open it. Some will of course take this food home, but if they don’t want to, they can drop it into our office collection box to donate it to our local foodbank.
How it works…
If you’re visiting Cornwall and have unopened food left over at the end of your stay, you can drop it into our Padstow office. Our local Foodbank will collect our donations. We’ll be asking customers and housekeepers to do the same.
We’re trialling it in Padstow and if it’s a success, we’ll have similar collection boxes in all our offices.
What can be donated…
There are a few stipulations:
- The items must be within date
- They must be unopened
- They must be non-perishable
- They must be items that the foodbank will collect. For a full list see here: https://www.trusselltrust.org/get-help/emergency-food/food-parcel/
Where will donations go?...
They will be collected by our local Foodbank in Wadebridge which covers the Wadebridge, Padstow, Camelford and Bodmin areas.
We’d like to thank one of our lovely Padstow owners, John, for this great idea!
