Until the recent pandemic and lockdown, Lewisham Foodbank had been providing food for 80 to 100 households a week, representing roughly 300 people. However, in the last few weeks demand has trebled, so Foodbank is now providing food for 300 households, representing roughly 900 people, and this number may well increase”.
The link below is an opportunity for anyone who holds a wholesaler members' card to help with sourcing the quantities of food that are required to provide parcels to that many people. Foodbank will deal directly with those who volunteer, and all purchases made on behalf of Foodbank will be fully reimbursed on delivery of the purchased goods to the Hope Centre in Forest Hill.
