Foodbank at the Yard opens on Wednesday 22 September
Foodbank provides a minimum of three days' emergency food and support to people in crisis.
WHAT IS IT?
We host the Wandsworth Foodbank on Wednesdays from 10am - 12:30pm.
We’re delighted to be re-opening our face-to-face Foodbank from the Yard from Wednesday 22 September, after almost 18 months of delivering emergency food to people’s doorsteps. Wandsworth Foodbank has delivered more than 16,000 emergency food supplies across Wandsworth borough during the pandemic.
We’re really looking forward to welcoming people back to the Yard on Wednesdays between 10 & 12pm to get the immediate practical help they need in terms of emergency food and essential toiletries. You'll also have the chance to chat with our friendly, trained volunteers about the difficulties people are facing and what help is available.
Our foodbank advisers will be available to offer expert advice to help people resolve the some of the problems that are causing financial hardship and foodbank need – most commonly around benefit payments, for instance when people have lost jobs or hours, or are too unwell to work.
If you’re facing severe financial hardship and need help and support, please visit the Foodbank Get Help page to find out how we can help. You’ll also find information about Wandsworth Council’s support grants for residents in hardship, which we recommend applying for. They’re grants not loans, so you won’t need to pay them back.
For further information about our re-opening of centres, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us 020 7326 9428.
