We serve the most vulnerable members of the entire community regardless of background. Voucher distributors such as the council, doctor surgeries, schools and other professional bodies will give food vouchers to clients they have established as eligible. These vouchers can then be redeemed for 3 day emergency food packs at our distribution centre every Saturday. We source our food through monetary and food donations at designated collection centres from Merton and surrounding areas.
The Food Relief team gives parcels of food to individuals and families in crisis from the food bank distribution centre. The parcel includes enough food to meet their minimum nutritional needs for 3 days. A typical parcel could contain food such as pasta, tuna, pasta sauce, soup, tinned fruits and vegetables, cereal and milk.
