Every day people in the UK go hungry for a range of reasons including having financial difficulties or due to being on a low income. Foodbanks make a big difference through providing boxes of food, and can help prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.
At Local Space we collect food donations for the Newham Foodbank, which is then donated for distribution to families each month. Food boxes provide three days nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to them. If you would like to contribute, drop donations into our office at 58 Romford Road, Stratford, E15 4BZ.
The Foodbank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
