We are already experiencing a huge surge in demand for emergency food at Waterloo Foodbank. While some are stocking up on supplies, the thousands of people who access our foodbank each year don’t have this luxury. We are struggling to keep up with demand and receiving fewer donations, while essential food items such as pasta and loo rolls are flying off our supermarket shelves.
At Waterloo Foodbank, we supported over 300 people last week alone - we usually support 350 people a month, in normal circumstances.
We need your help to keep our services running. We anticipate providing food to hundreds more people in the coming weeks, and increasingly will have to provide a delivery service to the vulnerable and those self-isolating. This will come at increased cost to us.
At a time of social distancing, this is the easiest way for you to support those in need. Help us with our Crowdfunder so we can ensure no-one in our local community goes hungry at this time of crisis.
£25 could provide a family with an emergency food parcel for three days.
£50 could provide us with a van for the day to collect food and deliver to those in isolation.
£100 could provide us with a sessional worker to run foodbank sessions for a week.
We have two offers of match-funding for this crowdfunder which will make your money go even further.
Thanks so much and stay safe!
