First opened in March 2011, last year our foodbank fed 1542 people.
February 2016 saw the relaunch of our foodbank after we moved into our first permanent home. With refurbishments funded by The Trussell Trust the new space allows Brent foodbank to introduce a variety of More Than Food services aimed at tackling the root causes of a person’s crisis and reason for visiting a foodbank.
Initially pilots will run offering debt advice and legal surgeries, full details of which will be announced later in the year. New services planned also include an Eat Well Spend Less course, helping people to cook and eat nutritious food on a budget.
Our foodbank is a project founded by local churches and community groups, working together towards stopping hunger in our local area.
