“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”

Southwark Foodbank provides emergency food to people in crisis. Our vision is a Southwark without the need for foodbanks. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. Whilst we continue to support local people who are referred to us, we know that hunger in Southwark is not about a lack of food. It's about a lack of income.
