Foodbank Collection

The Norwood and Brixton Foodbank is designed to help individuals and families in crisis through the provision of emergency food supplies. Local care professionals in the Lambeth and Croydon area refer people, with a food voucher to attend either the Norwood or Brixton Distribution point. There they are given food supplies, refreshments and where appropriate help in finding other professional help to get out of crisis.
