Thanks for everyone who has donated food recently. Over Christmas we fed our 5000th person since opening in September 2011.
We are currenlty low of coffee & fish.
If you want to donate, please can you bring some food this Saturday or Tuesday to the Brixton foodbank located at St Paul's Church, 184 Ferndale Road, Brixton, SW9 8AH. (Times below). You can also drop food on Sundays between 1230-1330.
If you can't bring food why not do an online shop and arrange for some to be delivered to the foodbank between 11am-2pm this Saturday or on Tuesday 10am-1.30pm?
Why not help others donate at one of our supermarket collections?
In conjunction with other churches in Brixton and Norwood we run a foodbank at St Paul's every Tuesday 10.30am-1.30pm and every Saturday 11am-2pm. We also have a branch in Norwood.
How it works
Food is donated
Schools, churches, businesses and individuals donate non-perishable, in-date food to the foodbank. All food given out by foodbanks is donated.
‘Supermarket Collections’ are one of the main ways that food is donated. These are food drives held at supermarkets where volunteers give shoppers a ‘foodbank shopping list’ and ask them to buy an extra item or two for local people in crisis.
Food is sorted and stored
Volunteers sort food to check that it’s in date and prepare food parcels ready to be given to people in need.
Frontline care professionals identify people in need
Care professionals such as doctors, health visitors, social workers, CAB and police identify people in crisis and issue them with a foodbank voucher.
Clients receive food
foodbank clients bring their voucher to a foodbank centre where it can be redeemed for three days emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a cup of tea or free hot meal and are able to signpost people to agencies able to solve the longer-term problem.
