Covid-19 and Barking foodbank

With the continued impact Covid-19 is having on our borough and across the nation, Hope Family UK are continuing to support our community through our Barking and Chadwell Heath foodbank sites. We have remained open since the start of the pandemic whilst observing the latest government guidance to help our customers and staff operate in the safest possible environments. Our team have learnt many lessons, even loosing some of those dear to us, whilst continuing to help an increasing number of people as the unfolding crisis seeps into peoples livelihoods and affects their jobs.

As well as seeing an unprecedented uptake in the visitors using our foodbanks we have also seen a huge increase in volunteers lending their help and pulling together in this time of crisis. For more information about our Barking Foodbank, please see the latest news.

The Barking foodbank at Axe Street, now operates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays only whilst our Chadwell Heath site remains open as usual on Thursdays.

We are here to offer help to anyone who arrives at our door in a way that preserves dignity, respect and individuality. We know what a difference food makes.
