Reverse Advent for Torrington Community Food Bank

This Christmas we would like to support Torrington Community Food Bank in the run-up to Christmas with our annual 'Reverse Advent Calendar'


What is a Reverse Advent Calendar?


The concept is simple; rather than the usual advent calendar where you open a window to see a picture or get a chocolate or some other goodie, you add a non-perishable food item or hygiene product to a box which we then donate to our local food bank. If you would like to take part, there is a box in reception for you to leave your donations in. Drop off times are before school, breaktimes, lunchtimes or afterschool.


What kind of things can I donate?


  • Instant Coffee & tea bags

  • Tinned Fish

  • Tinned Fruit

  • Custard (Tinned or Powdered)

  • Fruit juice (Carton) Long-life

  • Jam / Marmalade

  • Meat and Meat pies (Tinned)

  • Milk ( Long life UHT or powdered)

  • Pasta Sauce (Tin/Jar /Sachet)

  • Rice Pudding (Tinned)

  • Cup-a-soup / Pot Noodles

  • Sugar

  • Tomatoes (Tinned)

  • Vegetables (Tinned)

  • Spaghetti (Tinned)

  • Toiletries including toothpaste, toothbrushes, shower gel, deodorant & sanitary products


If you'd like to put a festive spin on your item , something Christmas related, please do so!


Fancy joining in?


Anything you give will be appreciated, and it doesn't matter if you can only do it for part of the month. Thank you so much
