East End Covid Support Network Reaches 30,000 milestone!

Through providing food, food banks do so much more than feed people — they help all members of a community receive the fuel they need to be their best. Developing our network of food banks is helping build stronger communities meal by meal.

It’s unacceptable that people are facing hunger in a nation with more than enough food to go around. And not only is it unacceptable, but it hurts us all — hunger weakens communities by threatening people’s ability to reach their potential and fully contribute to their communities.

Since the start of Covid-19  the East End Covid Support Network has been working tirelessly to support the communities in need. 

Abdal, Rofikul and Emdad as part of the East End Covid Support Network have co-ordinated the deliveries of  30,000 food parcels since the first Covid-19 lockdown. This milestone is huge to us and a testament to what we as a community can achieve. 

Freeman of the City of London, Rofikul Islam commented “As a nation, we know it isn’t right that anyone should be left hungry or living in extreme poverty. But whilst we work for long-term change, our network of food banks provides emergency food and compassionate, dignified support to people locked in crisis. We are grateful every day for your support and the opportunity to serve.”
