Journey Of A Jar - From Donation to Delivery

Journey Of A Jar

We followed a donation on 5th June 2015 all the way through our process and we thought we would share with you just how quickly food gets turned around and delivered to people in crisis in Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas.

 

09:04 – Nourish volunteer and St Peter’s School mum Claudia holding a jar donated by St Peter’s school as part of its regular monthly collection.

That day 37.1 kg of food was donated

09:39 – Jar on its way into the Big Yellow Storage unit along with the rest of the donations

09:52 – Jar weighed in and on the Nourish shelf

10.04 – Jar doesn’t stay on the shelf for long before it’s packed

10.17 – Jar now part of a foodbag and being taken for delivery that morning to a person in need by another volunteer, Lesley.

 

On that day we delivered 16 foodbags to individuals and families totalling 291.4 kg. We had 4 packers and 4 volunteer drivers.
