Here is an introduction to our project.
Our foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together to eliminate hunger in our local area. It was set up in October 2011 by Elim Church, Wimbledon to serve the community of the London Borough of Merton. Everyone is welcome. Our clients and volunteers come from all faiths, and none.
We are open six days a week at locations across the borough. See the Locations page for days, times and places.
We’re unable to receive fresh food but we have storage facilities to handle as much canned and dried food as you can provide. Our donations come from churches, supermarkets, local organisations, schools, businesses and individuals. Many donors shop online and have their donations delivered, by the supermarket, directly to us at Canterbury studios
(1/2 studio) 77a Canterbury Road, SM4 6QW, between 10am to 12 noon on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays.
