Story of Fundraising for Bounds Green Food Bank

Bounds Green Food Bank was established in June 2020 by Bounds Green Mutual Aid and the Bowes Park Community Association as a resource for those in need in our community. As members of the neighbourhood, our volunteers reflect the wide range of backgrounds and beliefs of those living in our part of North London. We are united in the vision that everyone in our community should have access to food. Thanks to grants from the London Community Response Fund and Haringey Giving, we were able to establish the Food Bank. However, to keep it running, the Food Bank will be reliant on fundraising from the local community. Over 140 families visit the Food Bank each week with each family receiving an average of £28 worth of food and other essential supplies from the Food Bank. This includes fresh and long-life goods, cleaning products, toiletries and baby food. To provide a basket of absolute essential goods costs about £5 per visitor. Unlike many food banks, we offer fresh fruit and vegetables and no vouchers are required, so everyone is welcome. We are also raising funds to purchase reconditioned laptops for local school children who are unable to learn from home when schools are shut as they do not have the necessary digital access. A total of 500 people benefit from the Food Bank on a weekly basis. You can support these members of the community by making a monthly or one off donation - we need to raise £20,000 from the local community to support the Food Bank for the next 12 months. Be part of this amazing project by donating whatever you are able to. With additional Gift Aid of 25% and the discount of 15% we receive when bulk buying goods, anything you donate will be worth over 40% more to the Food Bank. Whether it's £2 per month or £50 per month your support will go a long way in helping to support our our neighbours struggling with the impact of Covid-19, employment and food insecurity.
