EA Christmas Family Food Appeal - 2023

Workplace Health


EA’s Health and Wellbeing Team is delighted to launch the EA Christmas Family Food Appeal in partnership with The Trussell Trust which will run from Monday 13 November – Thursday 7 December 2023.

There are many ways to get involved with this giving back appeal, supporting the work of local food banks.

Firstly, If you are in a position too, we are calling on staff in schools and EA services to donate food related items to help children, young people and their families during the Christmas period.

Alternatively, you may be interested in taking part in a volunteering opportunity for approved staff to support The Trussell Trust’s Winter Collection Event taking place in various Tesco Stores – Visit here to find out more about this volunteering opportunity
