Your donation to Finchley Foodbank

Finchley foodbank was founded in 2013. We provide food and other assistance to local people needing support, supplying clients with enough food for three days. We operate from a position of trust rather than a referral/voucher system.

We would use your donation to buy eggs, cheese, bread, fruit and vegetables to supplement non-perishable donated food. We would also use it buy nappies and hygiene products.

Before the pandemic we helped around 70 people per week. During the pandemic it peaked at around 420 people. Since then, our numbers have grown steadily and we are now helping close to 500 people each week.

85 volunteers drawn from the local community operate the foodbank and we are actively looking to increase this number as we expect our client base to increase over the coming months. 

Thank you so much for your support. 

One last thing, does your employer have a Payroll Giving scheme in place? If not, they can register with Charities Trust and perhaps match your donations?

Gift Aid

Gift Aid allows UK charities to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on donations by donor if they are a UK Tax payer. This means we can claim back from the government on your behalf 25p for every £1 donated, boosting the value of the donation by a quarter.
