Support your local Food Bank by donating food directly through the Food Bank Aid Network. Food Bank Aid was set up in April 2020 to support North London food banks as they struggled with more than triple the normal demand through lockdown. Since then, we have grown, thanks to the incredible support of our amazing volunteers and donors. Every week our donations support 15-20 food banks across North London, which together, help around 12,000 vulnerable people including 3,000 children. Through a network of 50+ residential drop off locations across North London, we gather donations, sort them at our new Finchley Hub and deliver car loads full of packages to each food bank. We are proud that, to date, we estimate that we have sent over £1.8m worth of goods to our food banks. What makes Food Bank Aid unique is that by giving the food banks exactly what they are short of, they avoid stockpiling surplus items and have the right stock for the families that they support. It was clear to us that whilst one food bank had overstock of a product, another perhaps just a few miles away, would be desperately short. So we also created a network between the food banks so that they can share unneeded products with others who need it more. Each week the food banks let us know what they need and we post a ‘Shopping List’ on social media.
