Chuka today visited the Clapham Park Foodbank - part of the Trussell Trust network - to drop off some bags of food and meet the amazing volunteers helping members of our community who have fallen on hard times.
The Clapham Park Foodbank officially opened in February 2010 to providing nutritionally balanced food to individuals and families in need. Clients are referred by one of 1 of 86 organisations and agencies registered with Clapham Park Foodbank.
Chuka said: "It is disgraceful that people in the UK today should have to rely on food banks. We are very lucky to have excellent organisations, like the Clapham Park Foodbank, which provide a vital support to local people who have fallen upon hard times."
The Clapham Park Foodbank is based at the Bonneville Centre on Poynders Road and is open every Tuesday and Friday between 11:00 and 14:00.
