A simple idea...
Would you like to gift food to a neighbour?
You have surplus food but no time to drop off to a foodbank service?
You are interested in financially donating so we can get good food to neighbours?
Or you'd be interested in buying from local businesses that donate to our food parcels?

The "Gift Your Neighbour" idea...
Local refugee charity Salusbury World has worked with our resident associations, community organisations and mutual aid groups to create three local food hubs

Food gift parcels
Our volunteers prepare gift parcel bags that have a mix of freshly-made food prepared the same morning by Community Response Kitchen, fruit/veg and food the household can cook with such as rice or pasta and tinned tomatoes.
These can be requested via www.bit.ly/Giftmeal.
You can also use us as a 'drop off' point for non-perishable food for us to distribute to foodbanks (such as Brent Foodbank, Sufra NW London, North Paddington) or other food services in the area (such as The Granville Community Kitchen, Queens Park Community Hub, The Avenues, Willesden Foodbank service).
Make your donation worth 25% more, at no extra cost to you?
If you cannot donate food or time, you can support us by sponsoring a food parcel by donating here, via Salusbury World: www.justgiving.com/campaign/GiftYourNeighbour.
If you are a UK tax payer your donation will increase by 25% if you tick the Gift Aid box. 100% of the money will be spent on food (much-appreciated and urgent donations to the broader work of Salusbury World are to www.justgiving.com/salusburywrc).
