FIRST…we need help with the actual filling of our Jingle Bags.

So, we’ve put together a festive shopping list containing all the items we think make a great Christmas Dinner:

  • chicken/turkey (tinned)
  • potatoes (tinned or packet mash)
  • carrots (tinned)
  • sweetcorn (tinned)
  • peas (tinned)
  • gravy (packet)
  • bread sauce (packet)
  • stuffing (packet/box)
  • Christmas pudding
  • custard
  • mince pies
  • biscuits
  • chocolates/selection pack
  • Christmas savoury snacks

You might notice that we haven’t included crackers don’t worry we haven’t forgotten it’s just we have a cupboard full of them here and will be adding them in.

You can download a copy of the Jingle Bag shopping list here

SECOND…we need your help to let as many people as possible know about Jingle Bags so we can help those who need it this year.

So, how about taking to social media to spread the word…


Warm up your vocal chords and join our trustees by recording yourself (and your friends) singing our Jingle Bag Jingle…

“jingle bags, jingle bags, jingle all the way, oh what joy it is to have a meal on christmas day”

Then either:

  • post to our facebook page with the message “We’re supporting East Lothian Jingle Bags this year are you? #jinglebagseastlothian”


  • tweet your video with the message “We’re supporting @EL_foodbank jingle bags are you? #jinglebagseastlothian”

Go on we dare you, show your support, spread our message and take up the challenge for those who need our support this Christmas.
