Islington Foodbank receives food donations from a huge range of sources: from our supermarket collection points, to local schools and churches, to one-off bags that individuals bring in. However, we know that finding time to bring a donation to the food bank can be difficult, and knowing what to include in it even harder.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Bankuet. Bankuet are an online service that make it easier for you to give food banks what they need, when they need it. It’s really easy: you simply visit their website, select Islington Foodbank and choose a bundle. They take care of buying the food and delivering it to us.
Here’s how it works:
We’ll update them regularly on the items we’re lowest on, so you can always be confident that you’re donating the things we really need to help feed more people.
And you can choose to make a one-off donation or a regular subscription, whatever works best for you.
Islington Foodbank Project Coordinator said of the partnership, “I’m really excited about this initiative as we continue to give out record amounts of stock.”
Bankuet said, “Food banks are in the news almost weekly and Bankuet exists to serve and multiply the efforts of these frontline organisations. The generous public wants to help but current solutions don’t provide the easy direct link they are looking for.
People walking into food banks are often there for complicated and complex reasons. We don’t claim to be able to offer a solution to that. Our heart is to serve and support the incredible work that food banks do across the country as they help the most in need. Food banks need help and readily available technologies intelligently applied will transform their ability to serve.”
Islington Foodbank is closed after today, Monday 23rd March, due to the coronavirus pandemic. While we are closed you will still be able to make donations via Bankuet, and all the items donated will be passed onto the Islington branch of SVP, a charity who offer a home delivery service for food parcels among other things. While we are closed we are directing our clients to alternative sources of help including SVP.
