Charity number


We are an independent foodbank charity (with one foodbank in Bow and a second in Bethnal Green) that has served the local community since 2014.  We are open to those in need of food support without referral.    

Currently, during the continued COVID crisis, we are offering pre-bagged items + fresh fruit and veg once a week, with some extra food for families with children.

Pre the COVID-19 crisis in March 2020 we supported around 100 clients each week. Since then we have seen a staggering increase in those seeking help- and are now supporting over 1,000 clients each week, with extra support for over 2,400 children. 

We desperately need your financial support. With foodbills approaching £10,000 each week, more than ever we need your help to be able to continue to meet the needs of those in emergency food poverty in Tower Hamlets. 

We are very grateful for whatever help you can give us, but please think about signing up for a regular donation as this gives us some clarity for the future. 

£15 will allow us to support a family with enough basic food to keep them going for 3 days- and an extra £10 will pay for welfare and benefits advice for that family. 

With thanks from the whole team at Bow Foodbank.
