Old Oak Centre signs up to foodbank voucher initiative

Old Oak Community & Children’s Centre has signed up to become a voucher distributor for the Hammersmith and Fulham Foodbank.

The Foodbank works in partnership with agencies who support vulnerable families and individuals in crisis, providing food to those who are having difficulty purchasing enough to avoid hunger.

As a registered foodbank distributor we will hold vouchers which we can give direct to families in crisis, who can then take it to the food distribution centre.  Each voucher is valued at around £24.

How the H&F Foodbank works

Food is donated by H&F residents which is then sorted and packed by volunteers into 3 days’ worth of food.  The foodbank works with local organisations to establish a network of voucher distributers as well as helping to support the people in crisis in addressing their underlying financial issues.
