Young Barnet Foundation's commitment to addressing Food Poverty in Barnet

Support Barnet's Foodbanks

We are calling on residents of Barnet to Support our Foodbanks across the borough. Below is a list of food banks based in Barnet. Most are accepting donations throughout December. You can find the location of each food bank using the map found below.

 

We are currently focusing our efforts on ensuring that Barnet food banks are stocked for the rest of lockdown and beyond.

 

Thank you so much for helping out and making a donation to a local foodbank. Whatever you can share really will make a difference to those in your community and we deeply appreciate your generosity.

Foodbank Distribution Supply Hub

Groundwork London, as part of the Barnet Together partnership is now running the foodbank distribution supply hub, from the Old East Barnet Library, EN4 8SG.  

If you are unable to get to your local foodbank to gift food then deliveries can be made to the hub.

 

If you are a local business or supplier of food that could donate larger quantities of stock which can then be to be distributed then please contact Oliver Scott oliver.scott@groundwork.org.uk

 

Much of the food is currently provided by The Felix Project and on behalf of Barnet Together we thank them for their continued support and excellent work
