Living standards of Tottenham’s most vulnerable continue to fall during the pandemic, causing an explosion in demand for food aid.
Here at Tottenham Foodbank we're supporting 1,000's of individuals and families with emergency food parcels, but Covid-19 is impacting the service from several sides:
1. We are sadly seeing increased demand across area - 300% increase since March 2020.
2. To help keep beneficiaries and clients safe we're delivering all food parcels to people at home, instead of asking them to travel to us.
3. We are seeing a reduction in donations as people's shopping habits are changing.
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.
We need your urgent help to fund the purchase the food that is required to fill this gap.
How you can help
If you can donate food then please donate at one of these locations https://tottenham.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/
If you cannot get to these locations then please give to this Crowdfunder project that will allow us to purchase the food we need.
Thanks so much for all your support at this time of need.
