How to Support the Southwark Foodbank during COVID-19

29th May 2020

How you can support the Southwark Foodbank during COVID-19

Volunteer

PLEASE NOTE: We have had over 400 offers from local people to volunteer with us. Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to accommodate everyone at this time. We have also unfortunately not been able to respond to each offer but please know how much we value every single person who has generously offer their support.  

We are so overwhelmed with the outpouring of community spirit and support over the past couple of months. 

We have volunteers help us with making deliveries, sorting and packing up food parcels, supporting with admin and answering phones in our office space to make sure people have the best information and support we can give them. 

If you would like to volunteer with us, please note we have a waiting list but feel free to email us on [email protected]. We will not be able to respond to every enquiry due to the high volume of enquiries and our limitations on numbers.

Donate food

We have received support from local charities, residents associations, community groups and individuals who have given both food and funds generously to support our change in service to delivery and the increase demand we are facing. 

If you would like to donate food, please see our urgent needs list below. You can also donate food via Bankuet, an online shop dedicated to supporting foodbanks with food deliveries straight to the foodbank. You can also donate food at our warehouse 121A Peckham High Street, SE15 5SE between 9:30am and 1pm Monday – Friday. 

We have a number of supermarket collection points in Southwark so that you can make a donation while you shop.

Donate Money

If you would like to do any kind of fundraising or need information on making a donation as a group or an individual, please email our fundraiser, [email protected]

Both food and funds will add so much value to the work we are doing and will enable us to deliver food to people in need.
