Eric Allin Social Food Project

Using Surplus Food, for the greater good of our community in Northumberland Park Ward, Tottenham.

Haringey Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Statistics tell us that Northumberland Park Ward is one of the 3% most deprived wards in England (that 'green and Pleasant Land' in the poem by William Blake). In reality, people are on a weekly basis going to food banks, Community Cook ups, Soup Kitchens and Clothes & shoes distribution centres. Our project will promote all of these services under one roof. Where residents have needs which we are not qualified to address, we will signpost them to the appropriate agencies.

What we'll deliver:

  • We will apply for a 'tenancy at will' from Haringey Council.
  • We will consult widely through the Residents Association with residents and the Council's regeneration team for the ward
  • We will recruit local volunteers.
  • We will refurbish the agreed area.

Why it's a great idea:

It will help to alleviate food poverty. It will promote community cohesion in an area which is very diverse culturally. It will provide opportunities for volunteering, leading to workplace employment.

Steps to get it done:

We have identified a site which is currently vacant. We have experience in distribution of dry and perishable surplus food to people in need locally.
