About

About our foodbank

We're a grassroots food aid organisation, based in Tottenham's iconic Victorian Town Hall building.

We provide emergency food parcels containing at least three days’ worth of nutritionally balanced meals for individuals and families.

Clients are referred through our network of 100 Haringey voucher agencies. This means we benefit from their wide reaching knowledge of neighbours who’re struggling to buy basic essentials at this time (e.g. food, shelter, heating, lighting, basic toiletries and weather appropriate clothing).

This food aid service is restricted to UK residents with recourse to public funds (access mainstream benefits and housing assistance).

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, during our first year we’ve:

  • Received 43,470.47kg of food and household items (the weight of 3.5 new London Routemaster buses)
  • Distributed 2,964 3-day emergency food parcels to 1,372 local households (2,324 adults and 640 children)
  • Delivered our service with the help of 181 volunteers
  • Recruited 99 referral agencies across Haringey, to connect us to our most vulnerable neighbours
