New stretch target

Wow! We made it! Thank you all so much for helping us raise the £500 we needed to update our warehouse. We also need new boxes to store the food in and some office supplies to help us organise all the wonderful food donations we receive daily! 

Our office is also looking a little drab and needs some love. We desperately want to buy for example a projector. Can you help us?

We are Harrow Foodbank. Not long ago we celebrated our 4th birthday of supporting local families. We work to make sure no Harrow family goes hungry – but we need your help.

Last year 48 tonnes of food were donated to our foodbank. We pack this into three-day emergency supply packages with nutritionally balanced food. In 2015 we gave out 3,000 such packages to families in crisis. 

We also promote skills for life with events like this year's 'CAP Money Course', where participants learned strategies for budgeting and money management. For next year we are planning a cookery course to learn to make food go further. This helps create a more secure future for those who suffer in poverty.

We do all this very little resources, providing a service that is growing in demand. To continue to provide our service we need generous donations from people just like you. 

To continue with our vital work we need to give our office and warehouse a make-over. Most of our equipment has been in use since we opened over4 years ago and is starting to show some wear and tear. Here are some examples:   

Our team needs a new trolley to transport the donated food.

The scales are not accurate anymore and often break down.

The tables, where we sort and pack the food, have become too small and need an update.

Inside the warehouse the step ladder needs to be modernised to guarantee the health and safety of our volunteers.

The facelift for our warehouse will cost us £500.

We believe in a Harrow without hunger. Will you give us the means to develop our work with clients and make sure no Harrow child goes hungry ?
