Food and essentials
For those struggling with the cost of food and basic essentials, there are a number of food banks supporting our local community.
St Monica’s Church, N13 4DH
North Enfield food bank, EN1 1FS
St John the Evangelist, N13 4DA
The food bank runs on Fridays between 12-2pm at the front of the church. It is for anyone to come to, no paperwork needed, it is just a case of queuing up. The food bank will be running over the holiday period. Each person gets a bag of groceries including fresh items, a packed lunch and hot meal to take away. If you need toiletries please ask the person on the door.
St Andrew’s Southgate, N14 5PP
The food bank is open every Saturday 10-12 at the Church, not the hall and anyone can access the food bank.
Cooking Champions community kitchen
The Cooking Champions community kitchen is open every Friday at St Matthew’s Church, South Street, Ponders End EN3 4LA.
