The Bow Foodbank was established in 2014 and is housed at the Our Lady & St. Catherine of Siena Church. Although though it is not linked with the Trussell Trust, it is a valuable resource for Bow residents facing food insecurity.
The food bank is operated in collaboration with the Bromley-by-Bow Centre, which offers customers with extra support services such as counselling on housing and welfare. Together, the two groups strive to eliminate hunger in the neighbourhood.
Contributions of non-perishable food products may be made during the food bank’s operating hours or at nearby grocery stores with donation bins. The food bank takes monetary contributions, which may be done through its website.
There are several opportunities to become involved with Bow Foodbank, where volunteers are always welcome. Collecting contributions, sorting and packaging food products, and providing food to customers are responsibilities. Volunteer information is available on the Bow Foodbank’s website for anyone interested.
Fundraising is a vital method to help the food bank in addition to volunteering. Individuals and organisations may plan their own fundraising activities or join in events supported by Bow Foodbank to generate funds.
Bow Foodbank mainly serves the Bow neighbourhood, but it is also a component of the BETHNAL GREEN FOODBANK network, which offers food assistance across East London.
Bow Foodbank offers much-needed assistance to people who are trying to make ends meet and plays a crucial role in reducing food insecurity in the local community.
