The Food Hub
On Tuesdays we interact with the local community by redistributing surplus food such as fruit and vegetables free of charge to those who are unemployed and at risk of hunger. We facilitate this by partnering with local supermarkets to collect surplus food like potatoes that would otherwise go to waste.
‘I currently get income support, but the Tottenham Food Hub has helped me save extra money with the food they provide which allows me to have extra money for other expenses. I felt thankful for the help provided.’
‘The Tottenham Food Hub has helped me save a lot so that I can pay bills. The volunteers are very helpful and attentive and provide good company.’
‘If it wasn’t for these people I’d still be in the same situation. They’ve given me confidence to get back to work. I can’t thank them enough.’
‘God bless you all for your provision in this time of need. Thank you.’
‘Since coming to the Tottenham Food Hub it has been a blessing for both my teenaged son and myself…I feel free to be myself when I attend…It is God’s will that this community should have a presence in Tottenham.’

‘Thank you for this, thank you very, very, very much…this is the best.’
‘Takes the pressure off me looking after my wife because it provides us both with food to eat and friendly, nice people to meet. My wife, Sue, is not very well.’
‘The Tottenham Food Hub gives me a place to sit and talk to others as I cannot stand on my feet for a long period of time. It gives me access to healthy food which helps me manage my diabetes, and stops me feeling depressed.’
‘It has had a big impact on my family because it has provided fruit and vegetables.’
We offer a compassionate service to neighbours where we provide conversation to the lonely and one-to-one friendship to people who are at risk of loneliness.
‘Thank you for the basket of toiletries that was given to us for the poor and needy. It was truly appreciated and we give God thanks for those who gave it to you.’
