Generous Stoke Newington community get behind Food Bank appeal

Thank you to everyone who supported Location Location’s recent appeal for Hackney Food Bank.

We were overwhelmed by the generosity of this incredible community; one local even organised a supermarket delivery with several bags full of the core items.

Our collection followed an urgent appeal from the Food Bank which was running desperately low on many items.  Over a car full of food has been donated and will make a huge difference to people in most need.

We’ve been proud supporters of Hackney Food Bank for the last few years; typically we collect for them in the winter but times are hard and many more people are in crisis this year.

Last year Hackney Food Bank fed 3,458 people, almost a third were children. They help around 70 families a week but many more are in dire need. Many of those they help have no food or money because of issues with their benefits payments – increasingly people in poverty face benefits sanctions if they fail to turn up to a scheduled meeting. That can prove particularly hard for those with mental or physical illness or disabilities.

Thanks again to everyone who donated.
