Demand for our service at Muswell Hill foodbank has rocketed recently – partly because another nearby foodbank has closed. We are now serving more than 50 clients a week, which means we are giving out more than 1,000kg of food and other household necessities.
Our collections outside local supermarkets are now running almost every weekend and yet we still need more food. Our stocks are very low and some of our shelves are empty!
The most efficient way to keep the foodbank stocked is by raising cash donations, we are able to buy the items that we need (rather than relying on the collections) and we are also able to buy in bulk from cash and carry stores to make the best use of our resources.
We now have an online donation facility which enables us to benefit from GiftAid (increasing the value of your donation by 25%. https://muswellhill.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-money/
