Can you help local families survive the cost-of-living crisis?
People in our community are struggling. We are talking to people every day who are having to make heartbreaking choices such as buying food or paying a fuel bill to be able to cook a meal. This is happening all around us. This could be your friend, neighbour, schoolteacher or family member.
We have set up this crisis appeal as more people are coming to us for food than ever, but at the same time donations are falling.
In March 2021 our foodbank gave out food parcels for 626 people. This March we gave out food parcels for 1043 people.
In 2020 we served approximately 90 free hot meals on a Friday. In 2022 this has already risen to 150.
Many are embarrassed and ashamed to ask for help. They never thought they would need a foodbank:
We make sure that everyone is welcomed, reassured, and supported.
Your donation will help us be there for them. You can make the difference.
Who are Living Well Bromley?
We are a community hub based in Penge, southeast London, supporting those in need in local and surrounding areas. We provide people with crisis support in the short term to ensure that no one goes hungry. This is through our foodbank, free community café and weekly free hot meal. For some this is the only hot meal they eat in a week.
We also continue to address the root causes by providing free advocacy advice for debt, benefit, housing, and homelessness issues. We will continue to tackle the growth in mental health illness by offering counselling, art therapy and a welcoming, safe place to come.
