We are raising vital funds so that our Voluntary Sector can respond to the ever-increasing demand for food across Tower Hamlets. We are facing an unprecedented challenge which is likely to have long lasting impacts on Tower Hamlets Residents, so any donation you can make would be most welcome. With your help we can make a real difference to the lives of residents, stopping people going hungry when they are destitute or in a crisis, and ensuring that their children and families live happier, healthier lives. Your donation will be used to support local food providers and to provide food supplies, essential toiletries so they are able to support local people access food and essential items for to local food providers across the borough.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
£5 would buy a family of 2 adults and 3 children a package of essential toiletries, including shower gel/shampoo; sanitary pads; toothpaste and toilet roll £10 would buy a family (2 adults, 3 children) a package of essential food items, including rice, pasta, tinned tomatoes, oil, spices, potatoes, onions and garlic. This would last around 5 days £20 would buy a family (2 adults, 3 children) a package of toiletries and food, including mixed nuts, honey, cereals, mixed peppers and leeks, plant-based milk and salt, as well as the other items above. This would last a family 1.5weeks. £100 would buy 5 of the £20 packages £500 would provide a months’ worth of weekly donations to the food hub of mixed vegetables, ready meals smoothies, fruit such as mangoes, yoghurts, crisps and other snacks £1,000 would provide 2 months of this support, etc. £7,500 would provide the £20 food parcels for around 5,500 families for a week
Steps to get it done:
So far, we’ve been able to support 31 food providers who help 6,000 residents a week access food, since the start of the pandemic we distributed food from Farireshare, Felix Project, which was complimented by donations from Investec, Lloyds of London and 3 local supermarket, the bulk of this has now stopped, however, demand for food continues to increase. To meet this need, we require a minimum of 17 tons of food a week, with your help we can do better and expand our reach! No family should be without the basic essentials, so show solidarity and help us to support our communities.
