Restoring Dignity; Reviving Hope ! Local Help for Local People !
THE HILLINGDON FOOD BANK as featured in the local papers in 2009 & 2010, provides a breathing space, supporting individuals and families through the tough times. We provide short term and emergency food to families going through difficult times in the borough through a referral system from frontline professionals.
We work in partnership with statutory and voluntary agencies to make a positive difference to the well being of people in our community.
