Last year Wimbledon Foodbank supported over 5000 families across Merton with emergency food parcels, but Covid19 is impacting the service from several sides.
1. We are sadly seeing increased demand across The Borough of Merton and only expect this to get higher.
2. We are seeing a reduction in donations as peoples shopping habits are changing.
3. A number of our regular volunteers are from at risk groups so unable to work currently.
We need your urgent help to fund the purchase the food that is required to fill this gap.
If you can donate food then please donate at one of these locations - https://wimbledon.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.
Our foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together to eliminate hunger in our local area. It was set up in October 2011 by Elim Church, Wimbledon to serve the community of the London Borough of Merton. Everyone is welcome. Our clients and volunteers come from all faiths, and none.
We are open six days a week at locations across the borough. See the Locations page for days, times and places.
We’re unable to receive fresh food but we have storage facilities to handle as much canned and dried food as you can provide. Our donations come from churches, supermarkets, local organisations, schools, businesses and individuals.
