Barnet Mutual Aid - Food Hub

Collective

We need your help to continue supporting people in Barnet during the COVID-19 crisis through our Food Hub.

About


At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic a group of volunteers in Barnet created the UK Mutual Aid website (https://www.mutualaid.co.uk/) which connects residents with UK Mutual Aid volunteers through postcode matching, it has now become a nationally-used resource. We then used this website ourselves to unite volunteers within Barnet and help other organisations to set-up the Food Hub at Claremont Free Church. We distribute food parcels to around 86 people every week, 37 of these people are children, and now we need your help to continue.

Why does Barnet need a Food Hub?

In some areas of Barnet over 45% of young people live in poverty, these young people don't have proper access to nutritious diets and the coronavirus pandemic looks to worsen this situation.

How are we tackling the problem?

The Barnet Mutual Aid volunteer team are collecting and delivering food parcels every week to any person or family that need them. We are currently doing this for about 86 people. The team are doing this at the same time as transporting prescriptions, picking up shopping, and providing remote company to those still isolating.

What do we need help with?

Some items are difficult to source and rarely donated, this means they have to be bought. In order to do this, we need some support.

The two main areas where we need your help are:

We need to provide every family with fresh fruit and veg so that they have a nutritious diet, amongst other things this allows young people to continue to study effectively. We can deliver this for £8 per week, per family.

We need to provide sanitary products, the average cost of a period in the UK is about £10 per month. For this amount we can give someone dignity and comfort.

We can take donations of food and toiletries on Saturdays between 12 and 2pm
58A Claremont Road
NW2 1BU

Deliveries are on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Food pick ups from 12-2pm on a Saturday.
