Harrow Food Bank
In order to provide the most appropriate help for your circumstances we work with local agencies. If they feel you are struggling to put food on the table, they will issue you with a foodbank voucher. The local agency can also provide long term support if needed to help address some of the issues behind the reasons for your crisis. Agencies we work with include: Citizens Advice, housing support officers, children’s centres, health visitors, social services and some local charities. This voucher can then be redeemed at one of their collection points:
Particular support for food for elderly caring for each other or isolated with no support system, i.e family friends or neighbours that can shop on their behalf, or deliver food/essentials to them on a weekly basis.
