Southwark Foodbank 


From Monday 6 April 2020 the Southwark Foodbank will be moving to home deliveries ONLY for the forseeable future.


This is to ensure that those in need of support, who are following government guidelines by self-isolating due to the COVID-19 pandemic can stay at home and still receive the provisions they need.

We will run the regular Wednesday session at for the moment at:

City Hope Church

111 Drummond Road




We want to do everything we can to safeguard the health of clients, volunteers, and staff by minimising social contact.


We still work on a voucher system, so in order to use the foodbank people need to be referred by a voucher holder.

Please email for all foodbank enquiries.
