We hold supermarket collections twice a term which involves encouraging shoppers to buy items of food for the foodbank and campus collections throughout the year which involves encouraging students to donate unwanted food and necessities.
In addition, we also host our annual Green Mary Week Foodbank Competition in which teams and societies in Queen Mary University of London compete to raise as many donations as they can to win prizes.
We have socials once a term as a reward for all the hard work you do. Furthermore, once you complete 10 hours of volunteering with our group, you will receive a free QMSU Bow Foodbank T-shirt!
