The Finchley Foodbank was founded in 2013 and is an ecumenical project of St Mary's RC Church, East Finchley and other local churches and organisations.
We provide food and other assistance to local people needing support, supplying clients with enough food for three days.
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, our management committee have taken the decision to allow all clients, new and old, to visit us on a weekly basis if it is required. As we are located close to other London Boroughs and other food banks have had to close, we have also taken the decision to support people from outside the Borough of Barnet but signpost the client to their nearest available food bank for future reference. We have carried out a COVID-19 Risk Assessment and implemented stringent social distancing and hygiene measures and procedures.
The Finchley Foodbank works from a position of trust and so we do not require a voucher or referral.
We respect and welcome all those who visit Finchley Foodbank.
