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. 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

1. If you can physically donate food to us then please donate to one of our collection points listed below

  • Tottenham Town Hall, N15 4RY
  • Tesco Seven Sisters, N15 4AJ
  • Tesco Stroud Green, N4 3PX
  • Tesco Leyton, E10 7AA
  • The Engine Room, N17 9FU

You can visit our website for more information on how to donate food directly to us: https://tottenham.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/ 

2. If you still want to donate food to us but can't physically get to any of our collection points, you can virtually donate food to us via Give Today. Please visit https://www.givetoday.co.uk/tottenhamfoodbank/  for more information on how to do this.

3. If you cannot get to our physical collection points or don't want to donate virtually then please kindly donate to this Crowdfunder project that will allow us to purchase the food we need.

Your donation will help us continue to provide emergency food parcels to individuals and families who need them most in our local community. Historically, we’ve received donations both big and small from near and far so please see that anything you’re able to donate is valued, appreciated and will go a long way.

Thanks so much for all your support at this time.
