On Wednesday 22 May, four volunteers from the Marriott Park Lane Hotel spent the morning supporting North Paddington Food Bank.
The Marriot Park Lane team were quickly put to work; utilising their customer service skills to help sort and distribute food packages. In just over three hours the team had successfully unloaded food donations, prepared food parcels and packed away resources for the following week.
North Paddington Foodbank is open to the public each Wednesday morning and serves over 5000 people each year. Referred service users can collect a food parcel, in addition to receiving support from local agencies including Shelter and Citizens Advice Bureau.
The Foodbank relies on donations of non-perishable food and toiletries to supplement the deliveries it receives from supermarkets each week. If you would like to support the North Paddington Foodbank as part of a corporate volunteering project, either by holding a collection in your office or by volunteering, please contact our Community Team, who would be delighted to support you.
