The Harlow Foodbank helps individuals and families in crisis by providing free emergency food until the appropriate agencies are in a position to assist.
The aim is to engage with communities, introducing sustainable projects that enable marginalised people to break through their cycle of poverty.
Harlow foodbank needs OUR help
Tinned and dried food is collected from the public at supermarkets, churches, schools and other local groups and “banked” in a warehouse.
Can you help out and provide some of the food needed from the list? There is a drop zone at Harefield Church at the rear of the main hall.
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.
