Our COVID-19 Response.

Previous to the Pandemic, we saw 30-50 weekly clients across all 4 of our food banks. This has increased 6-fold since lock down to a weekly average of over 200 clients. We have adapted to ensure our service is as safe as possible and are now operating a daily delivery service. 


We understand that in these uncertain times many more people may be facing financial difficulty due to job insecurity or illness. On top of this families providing extra meals for their children not in school is a huge financial pressure. We are here for any queries you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How can I get referred? 


People may be referred to our service through a number of agencies, such as Citizens Advice Bureau, a school or The Job Centre. HOWEVER, we understand the nature of the COVID-19 epidemic has meant these agencies are harder to access. In light of this, you will be able to use our service if you call Southwark Council, who can make a referral on your behalf.
