Covid-19

Before lockdown, up to 15 families a day used the Ringcross Community Centre Foodbank in Islington.   Each week  since March, the number of  people in crisis coming to the food bank has shot up and now there can be as many as 70 families a day reaching out for assistance.  People who have never joined a food bank queue before are now finding they are unable to support their families and arriving on the doorstep of the centre
Currently, we provide a range of fresh and non-perishable food stuff which has been generously donated by our community.  As the numbers of those seeking assistance grow, we are struggling to keep up with demand.  Food donations are urgently required.  Drop off points are:-
Greens of Highgate, 3 Highgate High Street, London N6 5JR
- Greens in Muswell Hill, 112 Muswell Hill N10 3RU
- Ringcross Community Centre, 60 Lough Road N7 8RH

We are expecting food poverty to increase as the weeks go on, Jeff Hayes, Chair of the Trust for London, recently stated: “Households from across the income spectrum are on the precipice; many will have fallen over by the time this crisis ends.  More people will be unemployed, relying on the safety net of social security.  More evictions are highly likely, despite the government’s promises.”
