Help reduce food insecurity by becoming a Food Bank Volunteer.
Central Southwark Community Hub have managed a Foodbank for seven years and been involved in other community projects at various levels. During our time we have noticed how the people who rely on them are, more often than not, in need through no fault of their own and are merely victims of circumstance.
Their newest venture has been opening up a community hub, including a food bank, that will give people in need a place to visit that will help them receive some basic care provisions and give them the means to improve their own situations.
