Hammersmith & Fulham Foodbank is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those facing poverty in the Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham. They go above and beyond to provide food parcel home deliveries to vulnerable adults, transport food parcels to designated centres, and offer Hub support to the local community by providing practical advice and guidance. Their unwavering commitment to helping those in need is truly inspiring.
Take a look at the incredible impact that HATS has had in supporting the community.
Home & Centre deliveries
HATS has been carrying out two types of deliveries to support vulnerable clients in the local area. The first type of delivery is home delivery, which involves picking up emergency food boxes from the warehouse to deliver them to clients who cannot attend face-to-face sessions due to their vulnerable status and lack of support network. One of our drivers, Nyron Bent, has been dedicated to supporting this initiative by delivering weekly boxes of emergency food to the client’s homes.
The second type of delivery is the centre delivery, which consists of 8 sessions across 6 days of the week at 4 different locations. Our drivers have been collecting food donations from supermarkets, churches, and community centres around the local area, and dropping them off at the centre. This delivery takes place from Monday to Friday, and our drivers who have been assisting with this initiative have been managing it in between their school runs.
The Hub is a valuable resource for the local community, providing support from Tuesday to Friday. In the spirit of the holiday season, dedicated HATS volunteers generously offered their time to help add festive Christmas decorations to the Hub. Together, we adorned a beautiful Christmas tree and transformed the space into a cheerful atmosphere. To further aid the Hub, we made a trip to the local supermarket to purchase food that was later delivered to the centre. Our team was also grateful for the opportunity to assist in setting up the venue for the upcoming event. This included picking up rails from the church and organising donated clothing for the foodbank into designated sections for women, men, and children.
