The main objective of the project is to help those who are struggling to make ends meet. We will provide an emergency weeks worth of groceries to individuals and families who have accommodation but are going through a crisis. The ICEC Food Bank runs twice a week from our centre. All our food parcels contain enough content to suffice an average size family for a week.
How to claim
There are 2 ways you can use the food bank programme:
1) Get referred to us
We have partnered with a number of Schools & Colleges in Wandsworth such as Harris Academy, Chesterton Primary School, & Chestnut Grove. Alongside the Citizens Advice Bureau and Katherine Lowe. Please get in touch with them and a referral will be sent to us.
2) Self Referral
You can complete the self referral form below. If you need help completing the form please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
The Food back collection service runs twice a week; Thursday at 10am and Sunday at 12.30pm. You cannot turn up on the day without a confirmation.
We can also drop it off as part of the drop off service. The drop off service is particularly useful for individuals who are high risk or have mobility issues and are unable to visit the food bank.
