The lovely people from ReadiFood Food Bank (Readingís Food Bank) will be collecting at the MadStad before the London Irish match against Toulon on Saturday 14th December.
If you are able to bring along a tin or 2 (or more) to donate, the items they are most in need of included:

Tinned Vegetables
Tinned Potatoes
Instant Potatoes
Tinned chickpeas
Lentils (Canned or dried)
Small bags of rice
Tinned Fruit
Tinned Fish
Tinned Ready Meals
Tinned Rice Pudding
Teabags Boxes of 80ís & 120ís
Tinned Soup
Tinned Tomatoes
Cartons of Long-life Milk

They will also be accepting monetary donations, so donít panic if you do not have time to sort out a few tins before Saturday.

I volunteer delivering food parcels for this organisation and see how much these donations are needed. They deliver 180 parcels a week, please help if you can.

More importantly, why do we need food banks in an allegedly 1st world, developed economy?

A very good question and perhaps one we should all ask ourselves before Thursday. But for now sadly the reality is that we do and hopefully the London Irish family with be able to do a little bit to help on Saturday.

(Sm160) We do a Lions Xmas food collection at Sainsbury/Waitrose each year for hampers...Amazing how generous many people can be - especially when the reasons are explained - simply and with no political bent. We'll be bringing a few items to donate..
