SWITHENBANK – New Community Partner


January 2015

We are very pleased to announce that we now have a new Community Partner – Swithenbank in Hoddesdon, who will be working in partnership with Harlow Foodbank by providing fresh food items to us each week which we will re-distribute to local people in crisis and to organisations working on the front-line.  This will greatly complement the current range of fresh food that we receive and distribute from other local companies in the community who include Couzens – Fresh Bread, Greenways Eggs, UK Salads and High Tress Packers Ltd – Potatoes.

“We are delighted with this new community partnership with Swithenbank as it will extend our range of fresh food which we can offer to people in crisis alongside the non-perishable food that we already provide.   Special thanks to Kevin Tierney (Community Development Coordinator for Harlow Foodbank) for his work in securing this new partnership.”

Gary Knott, Director of Community Services
