Tottenham Foodbank is a charity that provides emergency food parcels to those in need.
Our charity has been providing food aid since November 2019 and we have seen a continual increase in the demand for our services since the pandemic started in 2020 and during the ongoing cost of living crisis.
We are now supporting 1,000's of individuals and families with emergency food parcels each year, all of whom have come through our doors after being referred by Help Through Hardship, local authorities or social services but the cost of living crisis is impacting the service from several sides:
1. We are sadly seeing increased demand for food support across Haringey- 300% increase since the pandemic started in 2020
2. There has been a rise in the number of families and individuals who need support with fuel for their home so we are also providing fuel vouchers for those most in need, in partnership with The Fuel Bank Foundation and Charis
3. We are seeing a reduction in donations as the cost of living crisis pushes more and more people into poverty. Those who were once able to donate regularly are having to cut back on their expenses which means they have less to give
4. A number of our regular volunteers are from 'at risk' groups, so they're unable to volunteer for us at the Town Hall in the same way they used to.
