The Ealing Foodbank was set up in 2013 when over 40 local churches expressed a desire to help local people who are in financial difficulties with emergency food supplies.
They are part of the Trussell Trust network of foodbanks, and serve referred residents of Ealing Borough from Acton to Southall, and Northolt to South Ealing. They have helped people from every ward in the borough!
Volunteering with the Foodbank comes in a range of activities: client facing in client centres, sorting and packing in the warehouse, driving and moving food from supermarket collection points or to the client centre, admin in the office. They ask for around 3 hrs per session and at least 2 sessions per month, and for long-term volunteers.
We are not able to take volunteers under the age of 18 yrs.
