Donating to the North London Foodbank

on Sunday, 03 November 2013. Posted in N21 Community

 

Every so often an email lands in your inbox that makes you stop and think. This happened to me this week, when Tessa Stevens, owner of the Tessa Stevens Health & Beauty Clinic on Masons Corner posted an appeal on the N21 Live Local Spend Local Facebook for food. The appeal was for staples - tins, cereals, rice, pasta etc which they are collecting for an Enfield food bank.

 
I wasn't even aware that there was an Enfield food bank. A quick Google search revealed that there are at least three. So, N21, we may not be feeling particularly flush at the moment, but there are people in other parts of the borough who will have been having to decide whether to heat or eat over the last few days.

And people from N21 responded to the appeal, this is just a small sample of what was dropped of at the Clinic during November 2013.

 

 Non-perishable food can be left there for the Foodbank until the beginning of Apr These are the sorts of food that can be left.

 

 

 

The North Enfield Food Bank has a very informative website that explains more about their work. They need ongoing donations and are also seeking volunteers.

 

 

 

 

 On the site are some moving stories of people and the work pf the Trussell Trust who founded their first food bank back in 1997.

 

 

 

Banks help people save money but this one is helping to save local lives. Give them your support.
