The Foodbank is designed to help individuals and families in crisis by providing free emergency food until the appropriate agencies are in a position to assist.

Our aim is to engage with communities, introducing sustainable projects that enable marginalised people to break through their cycle of poverty.

Tinned and dried food is collected from the public at supermarkets, churches, schools and other local groups and “banked” in a warehouse.

Food is then given to people in crisis as a result of referrals from registered care professionals, such as, Citizens Advice Centre, Safer Places, Harlow Council Front Line Services, Job Centre Plus, Spurgeons Children’s Centres, CDAT, Streets2Homes and other carers working in the front line.

Trussell Trust

The foodbank network is coordinated  by the Trussell Trust.  They now have over 430 foodbanks in towns and cities across the UK.

Harlow Foodbank is a member of the Trussell Trust Network of Foodbanks.
