Since it’s inception in June, the Castlehaven Food Bank has been providing a lifeline to hundreds of local people in need. The service on average feeds 450 individuals a week, which sadly is a huge number. In total the food bank has fed 4296 individuals and we have been inundated with requests which highlights the huge problem of food insecurity in the area. We are proud of the food parcels we send out as they are packed full of healthy produce, some of which has been grown at Castlehaven.
We wouldn’t be able to provide this vital service without your generosity. Firstly, we’d like to thank everybody that’s helped us #FeedTheCommuntiy by donating to our appeal. So far, we’ve raised over £6,500, which is so close to our goal of £7,500. If you can, please donate to the Castlehaven Food Bank Appeal and help us reach our target. The amazing volunteers who have selflessly given up their time to assemble and deliver food parcels deserve special praise, you are making a difference in hundreds of lives. Three people have been a constant presence at the foodbank, Mags, Nafisa & Dan Carrier have worked tirelessly in running the service over the past 8 weeks. We’d like to say a massive thank you for your passion and dedication. The food bank is a collaboration with Highgate Newtown and Kentish Town Community Centre's. Streets Kitchen have also lent their resources and expertise over the past couple of months. These incredible organisations have been helping the most vulnerable people for years, and they deserve your support.
