The Gospel Centre, corner of Raleigh Road and Wightman N8 0LT has been running a food bank as part of a wider Haringey food bank for over 7 years with numerous members of the local community.
Now due to changing circumstances we are not guaranteed our usual supply of food. Therefore, we invite further supplies from members of the public of non-perishable food.
The best time to drop off supplies including toiletries is on Tuesday 6.30-8.30pm and Sunday 11-1pm when we are open to those in need who visit our food bank.
Do you also need toiletries? I’ve been collecting some for a national charity but could happily deliver to you?
Are you a registered charity? Is there some way you could set up a collection point in Tesco near Turnpike Lane/Wood Green? Maybe advertise it over a week or so and have one weekend where people can donate. Have a team of volunteers in the store and transporting food from Tesco to the Gospel Centre. I would help in store or transporting or both over that weekend I’m sure there would be others who would give up a couple of hours at a weekend to help.
Thanks Lydia for your suggestion. We are a part of Haringey food bank, a registered charity. There have been collections from other Tescos stores before. Whilst we are not in a position to approach this store at present I will very much take account of this possibility in the future.. Thank you
