Our food bank welcome centres are open as usual tomorrow – Thursday 14 April – at Mitcham Lane Baptist Church in Tooting (10am-12pm) and at Yvonne Carr Community Centre, Battersea (2-4pm).
Then we’re giving our awesome volunteers & team a break over the Easter weekend. Our centres and office will be closed on Friday 15-Monday 18 April inclusive.
We’ll re-open again on Tuesday 19 April and will have our usual Tuesday food bank welcome session at St Mark’s Church, Battersea Rise from 12-2pm.
We’re so thankful for everyone who is supporting us, and the local people and families referred to us in great need. The cost of living increase, without a matching increase in benefits and pensions payments, is already impacting many local people on the lowest incomes.
There is still time for the government to listen to people and charities across the UK and choose to raise benefits and pensions in line with inflation. We hope they do.
In the meantime, thank you – and we hope you have a peaceful and hope-filled Easter.
