Update on Finchley Foodbank

Finchley Foodbank, founded in 2013 as an ecumenical project of St Mary's Church and other local churches and organisations, transitioned to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation in September 2022. We wish to express our sincere gratitude to St Mary’s parishioners for your steadfast support throughout our 11-year journey. We provide approximately three days of emergency food for people living in financial hardship in the London Borough of Barnet. This is done through two weekly sessions at the parish centre. In addition, we offer support through advisory services, a monthly newsletter and assistance in enhancing digital literacy skills. At present, our outreach encompasses 250 households weekly. Clients are interviewed when registering with us in order to ascertain their needs and are required to provide a letter/bill/statement, dated not more than three months from registration date, showing their name and address. We operate on a basis of trust, a principle rooted in the legacy of St Mary’s former parish priest. Our dedicated team of over 195 volunteers embodies the rich diversity of our local East Finchleycommunity. We are incredibly fortunate to have individuals generously offering their time, expertise and talents. “Thank you very much for helping people who don’t have food by giving food. And using your time to make sure everybody has food. I will try to help by not wasting my food and donating food for the foodbank.”  Client Aged 9
