East London Food Banks in Tower Hamlets

Food banks are an intensely divisive image, an uncomfortable underbelly of austerity often in touching distance of conspicuous wealth.”

Bow Food Bank

“We are an independent food bank and provide 10 food items every other week to our clients, many of who are ineligible for support from other foodbanks.”

The Bow food bank is a vital lifeline for families, but sadly Universal Credit is only pushing more people through their doors who are having to ask for food that doesn’t need to be cooked—that shows they may not even be able to afford to run their cooker.

First Love Foundation Foodbank

“We’re here so no one has to face crisis alone. Since 2010, we’ve helped thousands of people in one of the UK’s most deprived boroughs get their lives back on track. We’re more than a foodbank – that’s just one of the things we do.”

First Love Foundation coordinates the Tower Hamlets Foodbank, and works to tackle hidden hunger through the provision of emergency donations of food (enough for a minimum of three days) and support to those facing real crisis. It also runs an Advice & Support project which works alongside the Foodbank to ensure that everyone referred to the Foodbank is able to receive help to resolve the underlying causes and have a greater long-term impact in the life of the individual.”

Food banks feed nearly 2,300 people in Tower Hamlets in a year. The figure of 2,272, which includes 943 children, was revealed in a report by food aid charities that totalled up the number of people in London who used emergency food aid for three days.
