Changes to Our Foodbank

Changes to Our Foodbank

 Mon, August 10, 2020

The Castlehaven Community Association have started a new and exciting collaboration with Cooperation Town to provide food parcels to those directly affected by Covid-19 pandemic. Castlehaven, Highgate Newtown and Kentish Town Community Centres joint Covid-19 Foodbank project has now come to an end due to ending of our joint funding stream from DEFRA. We worked tirelessly with hundreds of local volunteers in providing thousands of meals for our local community. Highgate Newtown and Kentish Town Community Centre's will still be providing food in different ways for their local communities to benefit from.

We were extremely lucky to work with these two amazing community organisations to help those most in need due to Covid-19 pandemic. 

We are very happy to announce that Castlehaven will temporarily provide much needed healthy food parcels to our local community until our Foodbank Campaign funding runs low. If you would like to donate please hit this link Foodbank Appeal
