Students get creative to help with FoodBox marketing


1st Prize

Imaginative students at Cranford Community College have got behind Hounslow Community FoodBox by creating straplines which can be used in marketing the scheme.

The students presented their ideas to Hounslow Federation of Tenants and Residents Associations (HFTRA) who awarded certificates to those who took part. One of the straplines ‘Give a little, help a lot’ (created by student Anas Osmaan) has already been adopted for use on the new Hounslow Community FoodBox website

HFTRA has praised the imagination and colourful ideas on the posters. ‘Wonderful, beautiful people’; ‘You give, we give’ and ‘Don’t be grumpy, help the hungry’ were amongst the straplines proposed.

The idea for Hounslow Community FoodBox has been developed by the London Borough of Hounslow and the Hounslow Federation of Tenants and Residents Associations (HFTRA) with the aim of involving residents and local groups in working together to prevent and relieve poverty, as well as creating new employment and work experience opportunities.

Hounslow Council and local groups working with those in need, will help to identify families and other residents in crisis and in need of emergency food.

Distribution of the non-perishable food boxes will begin in May and will work on a voucher system, with recipients being given vouchers by FoodBox Approved Referrers which they will be able to exchange for a FoodBox.
