The North London Foodbank

Boxes of Basics

The North London Foodbank provides boxes of food basics to families. In winter, when heating bills rise and there is no money, many families have to choose between heating or eating. We are here to take the pain out of the decision, by stepping in and providing for them during a crisis.

Every winter, there are people that are so financially strapped they are unable to afford heating and food at the same time. We are trying to solve the problem of food poverty, a very real problem in todays day and age. We have found that in the winter, with the rising cost of heating, people have to make the oh-so painful decision between heating or eating.


By providing them with their basic needs, we are taking them out of crisis mode. They can then focus on getting themselves back on their feet. We provide boxes of food items, such as bread, milk, eggs, etc. Our assistance is short term- usually for a week or so, whilst our benefactors are stuck in a crisis. We then focus on helping them find employment and help themselves.
