The foodbank provides a valuable service to local residents who are so in need of food and even more so now with the current Covid-19 crisis that the country is going through.”
The foodbank, in Guardian Business Centre, Faringdon Avenue, was founded by churches and community groups working to eradicate hunger in the area.
It is part of a nationwide network of facilities backed by charity The Trussell Trust, which works to combat poverty and hunger across the country.
