“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”

Wandsworth Foodbank provides emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaigns for change to end the need for food banks in Wandsworth, and the UK.

We're part of the Trussell Trust, which supports a nationwide network of food banks. In 2018-19 we provided a record 5,770 three-day emergency food supplies to local people referred in crisis – a 78% increase in food supplies provided in five years. Thirty-seven percent of food supplies were for children.

We know it takes more than food to end hunger. That’s why we our Foodbank Advice Project offers advice and casework to people referred in need, and why we publish annual research into the drivers and impacts of food bank use in Wandsworth Borough. We want to challenge the structural economic issues that lock people in poverty, and campaign to end the need for food banks in the UK.
