Not sure what to include in your #FoodBankAdvent box? Here’s what some of the UK Money Bloggers have included so far.
The idea is to collect items during November, which can then be delivered to food banks at the start of December, ready for distribution before Christmas.

Day 3 of #FoodbankAdvent: added a tin of pineapple, as fruit is so expensive when money is tight. Ring pull can so no tin opener needed. pic.twitter.com/jqRiPQig9D

Thank you to Theresa from our @sainsburys Local 💋who helped James out of his biggest tantrum so far! 🤦🏻♀️ He had a full on layout in the middle of the aisle, 🙇🏼 snot all over the tiles and 100% refusal to shift ⛔️ Theresa came to the rescue with chocolate 🍫 This little Halloween bag of choc eye balls Made. His. Day 😂 To be fair, she could have given him an empty box or used till receipt 🤷🏻♀️ He was just happy to have something he didn’t have to share with Little Ted 💁🏻 Journey back to the car was restored and to pass on the kindness, we’re adding the chocolates as a bonus gift in our reverse advent box for our local food bank in Cottingham. And…relax. It’s definitely been one of “those days” 💆🏻🍷 #foodbankadvent #notallheroeswearcapes
Today is the start of my #FoodBankAdvent campaign. This pack of rice went into the box to kick things off. Everyday for the next 25 days I’ll be adding an item to my box for a reverse advent calendar. This box will then be taken to my local food bank ready for distribution in time for Christmas. If you’d like to take part or see other ways to help then check out the link in my bio. #UKMoneyBloggers #givingback #Reverseadvent #reverseadventcalendar

Reverse advent food bank collection is coming on wonderfully at work. Such a simple idea and it’s not too late to start. Place one non perishable item in the box each day for a month and then donate to your local food bank to help people at Christmas. Check out the Trussell Trust for details of where they are and what to donate #FoodBankAdvent #donatetothefoodbank #foodbankadvent #foodbank
I’m not doing #FoodBankAdvent though I think it is a super cause, and have shared on FB, Twitter. However I have been inspired by you guys to set up a regular donation to the Trussell Trust, so my ‘Advent calendar’ will benefit the charity throughout the year. I often put stuff in the supermarket box, but this way the charity gets it regularly all the year round…
