Can you complete a Reverse Advent Calendar?

1st December 2019

Our Reverse Advent Calendar is a popular and easy way of supporting our Foodbank at Christmas. Last year, we were blown away by your support and this year, we’d be grateful for any help you can give over the Festive Period.

Winter is an incredibly busy time for our Foodbank, our Research and Statistics shows that in January 2019 we saw our highest level of demand in three years. Your help at Christmas is integral to our work in the community as the weather gets colder and budgets tighten.


The concept for the reverse advent calendar is simple; each day of advent, you put aside a food item or toiletry product, and you donate it all in the last days before Christmas.

This year, Clapham Park Foodbank will be open on Friday December 21, so please bring your completed collections on that date between 10am and 12pm. If you can’t make that time – don’t worry! Just contact us, and arrange a more suitable time to drop your donation off.

If you want to get started, check out our handy template here! If you want to donate on an ad-hoc basis, check out our shopping list.

If you’re in trouble, we can help. Find out how we can support you.
We have new volunteering opportunities available at Clapham Park Foodbank. Can you help?
