Hackney residents and businesses are being urged to give what they can to make sure no one goes hungry this Christmas by donating to The Hackney Festive Food Fund. 

Hackney’s community food hub supplies have fallen dangerously low as the pandemic sees more people in need. By donating cash via the Just Giving page or delivering food to one of the three food hubs across Hackney, residents can help fill the gap in demand. 

Hackney’s community food hubs serve over 20 local food groups, which work with the Council to make sure help reaches those who need it most. Money raised will help them to continue to deliver over 3,000 hot meals and 2,000 food parcels per week. This community-led food response, also provides culturally and dietary specific food as well as signposting to community networks for longer-term support.
