Harvest is a time to celebrate abundance and share with community in the spirit of generosity and compassion. We want to support our local community and continue to support the growing number of people in need of emergency food.
Last year we fed 5 097 people in Southwark, and 2 042 of those people were children. We recognise the need in our community, especially as the summer draws to an end and families have added costs such as fuel in the colder months, and back to school expenses. We want to support those in need and help provide them with emergency food to get them through periods of crisis. In the uncertainty of the upcoming months, we need to be as prepared as possible to meet the ever growing needs of people in our community who are vulnerable to change.
You can help by:
- Donating money
This year, we are making an appeal for financial donations alongside our food donations to help with the financial cost of keeping our foodbank running.

We also take delivery of food shops that are ordered to us through retailers and the delivery is as above.
