Help your local food banks during COVID-19 outbreak
We’ll be updating this page with what help our local food banks need and the help on offer
Hammersmith & Fulham
The Hammersmith & Fulham foodbank is still open across its three Foodbank Centres in Hammersmith & Fulham. It has changed its method of operation in that it is no longer seeing clients in the foodbank, but are instead giving out food parcels at the door. The organisers add:
“We’ve been getting a lot of phone calls recently from elderly people who want to visit the foodbank to collect a parcel – who have money for food, but are unable to find food in the supermarkets. We are redirecting these people to local churches (st Dionis, Fulham, St Matthew’s Fulham, and St Etheldreda’s Church, also in Fulham.”
Anyone needing the foodbank (because they don’t have money to buy food) needs to be referred by one of our Referral Partners which includes: Social Services, Citizens Advice (030 0330 1162), the Law Centre, or the Local Support Payments Team (020 7745 6464).
We have plenty of volunteers for now, and are referring people to the LBHF website, where they are collecting details and coordinating a larger response over the next few days/weeks.”
Cash donations can also be made via the website
Kingston Foodbank is continuing to support local people . The website www.kingston.foodbank.org.uk is updated regularly to say the food items that are most needed and provides information on volunteering and financial donations. “We’ve been receiving fantastic support particularly with food donations which is very welcome,” the organisers add.
