We hope everyone is keeping cool and enjoying this wonderful weather. Saturday was certainly a very hot and busy session, in which we supported 332 people with food. Finchley Foodbank is still experiencing large numbers of people needing food support. We have noticed a decline in donations recently, since half term. We understand that not everyone has the time or finance to support us regularly, but rest assured every donation makes a difference to the people who visit us.
We welcomed 4 new households to Finchley Foodbank this week.
This week we are short of:
- tinned meats, such as corned beef, hot dogs, pies and ham
- cereal, medium sizes preferred
- tinned fruit
We have enough of everything else for this week, so if you can concentrate on these items that would be fabulous, so that we are able to give all of our clients these basic items.
Every donation makes a difference, big or small. Please check your donations are in date as we have vulnerable clients.
We are able to accept donations from members of the public on: Wednesday 10am-1pm & Friday 12-3pm in the church hall behind St Mary's Church, 279 High Road East Finchley N2 8HG.
Collection points are also available in the Sainsburys Local High Road East Finchley N2 and Martyn Gerrard 365 Regents Park Road N3.
Please observe the 2 metre distance rule whilst on the premises and try not to touch anything. To the left of the church is a drive way, walk down it and leave your donation on the table ahead of you. Please don't come inside the hall.
If you are in isolation, but want to support us we have an online giving page. https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/displayCharityCampaignPage.action?campaignId=13022
