messageFood bank in ED?
Posted by Bob Buzzard 23 November, 2018 20:40

Is there a food bank in East Dulwich? I think there's one in Peckham, but what about for people in ED? Food banks are really important for some people, especially with the delays that are occurring with Universal Credit payments and the focus on austerity.

Great,thanks for that info re: the food bank in ED on Barry Road. I did a Bing search and only came up with Peckham, so was worried that there was no food bank in ED. I have Windows 10 on my computer as my OS, but I find when I use Google for searching it keeps asking me to install the Google Chrome bowser, but that doesn't seem to work too well with Windows 10, so I just use Microsoft Edge as my bowser and Bing as my search machine.

My pleasure. It is good to know that there are places available. There seem to be quite a few food banks across the borough. Computers can be very fussy - yesterday, having had no problems accessing a website ever before the browsers (FireFox and Chrome) suddenly decided that they couldn't open any pages on the site! I use it for local information - am hoping they are feeling better today!

Christ Church have a box for donations to a food bank - they do not operate a food bank.
I think the nearest is PECAN in Peckham

Pugwash, do you know whether there are restrictions on what donations are accepted by Christ Church/the Pecan food bank?

I have a number of unopened food items as a result of changing my diet, but I don't want to take them to a food bank if they aren't going to be used by those in need.

They include canned fish, canned fruit in syrup, stock cubes, hot chocolate, golden syrup, Lea & Perrins sauce.

I've also got some hair products (mousse etc) which I no longer use - do food banks take things like that as well?

You can also drop things off in supermarkets - I know there's a basket for donations in Morrisons, probably one in Sainsbury


I think the rule is - tinned or dried food is fine, they don't take perishables (fresh veg etc) so all of your items sound fine.

I don't know about toiletries but homeless shelters might take them

Thanks Jennys, most of the places in that link are in the States?

I'll check out the one in London. The page is headed January 2019, so the info should hopefully be still current.
