THE WORLD MEMON ASSOCIATION AND BARNET MAYOR VISIT FOOD BANK DISTRIBUTION HUB
NEW PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN BARNET FOOD HUB AND WORLD MEMON ORGANISATION CHARITABLE FOUNDATION IS SET TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL FOOD DONATIONS TO THE FOODBANK NETWORK IN BARNET
The Barnet Food Hub are delighted to announce that from 1st April 2021, The World Memon Organisation (WMO) have joined as one of our supporting partners. The partnership will support the Barnet Food Hub through the supply of food and other essential items that are distributed to our 17 foodbank partners across Barnet.
This partnership will allow the Barnet Food Hub to continue its supply of essential items to the borough of Barnet’s most vulnerable residences for an additional estimated 3-6 months. This will allow the Hub to purchase more items that are harder to source through food waste redistribution, allowing for a better supply of items such as eggs, cooking oil and culturally specific items. This will allow for a more extensive offering from the Hub that would be in line with our commitment to more nutritious, healthy food that is culturally sensitive.
Mr Mahmood Shaikhani, Deputy President of WMO said“The WMO Food Program is yet another global initiative that firmly underlines the evolution of WMO from an organization that was founded to uplift the Memon Community to an institution that Serves all Mankind. We transcend countries, boundaries, religion, community, caste, colour, race and creed. We Serve Humanity and this is the time for everyone to come together to heal the nation as it continues to reel under the Corona pandemic. At a time, when the World needs healing, our compassion must lead the way'" concluded an emphatic Mahmood Shaikhani.

The Worshipful Mayor of the London Borough of Barnet, Cllr Caroline Stock said “ It has been really heartening to watch how in these exceptionally difficult times communities have come together from all faiths and backgrounds to ensure that Barnet’s most vulnerable residents are supplied with essential food items. I have had the privilege to visit a number of the food banks over the last year and on each occasion have come away feeling humbled. I am delighted that the WMO Food Program have come on board to help with supplies for the next 3-6 months. Can I also take this opportunity to thank all the amazing people involved with ‘Young Barnet Foundation’ especially Janet Matthewson and Barnet Together, for all they have done to get Barnet through this horrendous pandemic."
On Behalf of Barnet Together, Janet Matthewson of Young Barnet Foundation said “we are sincerely grateful to Mahmood Shaikhani and the World Memon Organisation for their contribution to the Barnet Community, they have shone as generous leaders within our community and we look forward to working together for the coming months. I would also like to Thank our Mayor Cllr Caroline Stock for all the support she has offered us and the wider community during these testing times”
