One Can Trust

The One Can Trust foodbank was founded in 2011 and set up as an emergency source of food for those in need. The charity supports individuals and families across the whole of South Bucks and is currently providing weekly food parcels for over 440 people, half of which are children. Sadly, One Can expect this number to significantly rise again over the coming months as the current economic climate becomes more challenging.

One Can Street Heroes

The hugely successful Street Hero campaign was borne during the first lockdown when fewer people visited supermarkets. One Can believes that 90% of the donated food during the first lockdown came from the Street Hero campaign. One Can regularly supports, with weekly food parcels, over 500 people per week in High Wycombe, Marlow and the rest of South Bucks. Unfortunately, One Can believes that number will increase again, particularly with the imminent closure of the furlough scheme. To meet growing demand and as many of the original Heroes have now returned to work, One Can is keen to find new Street Heroes. Could you help and join their army of volunteers? All you need to do is place a lidded tub (which One Can will provide) outside your home and let your friends and neighbours know that you are collecting.

 

Using a Facebook or WhatsApp group locally is a really effective way to get the initial message out to your friends and neighbours and keeping them in touch with updates. Collected items need to be delivered to One Can’s warehouse in Duke Street, High Wycombe (behind the train station). If you are unable to make it over to Wycombe during drop off times (Monday-Friday 10-12pm midday), One Can will arrange for your donations to be collected.

 

Please get in touch with One Can if you think you may be able to help. Their phone number is 01494 512277.
