Ealing Foodbank News Update    (19/02/19)

The following is derived from an update recently circulated to volunteers who support the Ealing Foodbank.

Demand at the Ealing Foodbank’s distribution centre cafés has grown significantly over the past year with increases of between 50% and 150% at each of the five existing cafés. Greenford, Southall and Acton are the busiest cafés, although Hanwell and Northolt have also seen significant extra demand. A new café will be opening at Ealing Green Church on Tuesday mornings from 26th February with Rev Sue Male as team leader. This means there will be a café open throughout the borough every day apart from Sunday.

The Foodbank is looking for volunteers to support the work of the Crisis Navigators at the cafés who can provide clients with advice on benefits, local services and support agencies. Someone to take over as Referral Partner co-ordinator is also required, liaising between the Foodbank and the agencies that distribute Foodbank vouchers to people facing food crisis. For role descriptions, please contact the Foodbank Manager on 020 8840 9428 or https://ealing.foodbank.org.uk or www.facebook.com/EalingFoodbank .

In addition, the Foodbank is keen to connect with appropriate Facebook accounts and Twitter users who can help with publicity, including by sharing a recently posted short video about what a foodbank does https://goo.gl/oqu5sZ . There was also an article in the latest edition of the Ealing Council’s magazine.

The Foodbank is partnering with the Salvation Army in a new Baby Bank initiative to pass on baby equipment and clothes to those in need. Suitable donations are welcomed.

On Tuesday 26th February 7.30pm Hanwell Methodist Church will be the venue for an hour of prayer for the Foodbank. There is also a regular “prayer in the warehouse” session at the Ealing Foodbank headquarters from 1.00-1.30pm on the 4th Tuesday of every month from Tuesday 23rd April.
