Food Warehouse: your convenient solution

Obtaining food and other groceries for your unit during a week-long camp at the jamboree can be quite challenging due to the scale of the site and logistical complexities. Fortunately, we have a solution: the onsite Food Warehouse.

The Food Warehouse is our on-site supermarket, offering a simple, cost-effective, and practical route for units to purchase essential supplies, including food and other goods such as cleaning materials.

What's more if you have someone who is celebrating a birthday whilst at the Jamboree, why not order them a special birthday cake from us?

While the primary method is online pre-ordering, we also maintain a small stock of staples and other items for immediate purchase.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pre-Ordering: Units can pre-order supplies for daily delivery throughout the event. Our bulk storage facilities accommodate frozen and chilled products, allowing us to efficiently handle bulk deliveries and individual orders. We’ll deliver directly to your subcamp.
  • Payment: When placing an order, we require 90% payment upfront, with the remaining payment due on site. Bank transfers or card payments; we do not accept cheques.
  • Comprehensive Range: We’ve curated a comprehensive range of products, but if there’s something specific you need that isn’t on the order form, such as a birthday cake, let us know at foodwarehouse@eij.org.uk, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request.

Take the stress out of grocery shopping and order through the Food Warehouse for delivery direct to your subcamp.

To place your order please download and complete this Order Form and send to foodwarehouse@eij.org.uk

Remember to include your group name, booking reference, and subcamp.

If you have any queries, please email us at foodwarehouse@eij.org.uk or visit us on site between 08:00 and 19:00 during the event.

If you order from an outside supplier, their deliveries will be taken to the Food Warehouse for you to collect. Please also note:

  • Delivery time should be between 08:00 and 18:00 to ensure smooth handling.
  • Please notify us in advance of any expected deliveries (via email or in person).
  • If you’re not present during delivery, we’ll store your items and notify you via your subcamp.
  • Collection hours are 08:00 – 19:00.

Also within the Food Warehouse, we will have a Green Grocers so you can get all the fresh vegetables and fruit you need - vital to keep all our young participants and leaders healthy whilst here at the Essex International Jamboree.
