We celebrate Harvest Festival this Sunday (3 October) and are supporting our Food Pantry. Please bring your offerings from the "most needed list" below. We have seen a significant rise in demand this Autumn. Every item will help.  

The Food Pantry is open on WEDNESDAYS from 1pm-3pm (Donation box on Saturdays 10.30 – 12 noon).

1. What items are most needed?

Rice, pasta, tins (pulses, veg, fruit, soup, fish, meat), spreads, cereal, UHT milk & fruit juice, biscuits, condiments, oil, tea & coffee, cook-in sauces, toiletries, cleaning products, washing powder/liquid, toilet paper.

No carrier bags at the moment please.

2. What if I or someone else I know could do with food packages? 

If you, or someone you know, are struggling for food or household supplies please notify Mthr. Valerie or call her on 020 8997 6189. Otherwise, simply come along to the Food Pantry to take some food and supplies. You will be very welcome! 

3. Where do I drop off donations?

There will be a donations outside the  church from 10.30am to 12pm on Saturdays or you can pass them to one of the local hubs. Currently we have four hubs in Holyoake Walk, Harrow View Road, Kingsley Avenue and at the Vicarage on Woodfield road. (See question 4 below if you'd like to become a local hub.)  Alternatively, you could bring the food donations on Wednesdays from 1pm - 3 pm.

4. Can I volunteer to help?

Yes! If you have a car, you could take any excess food and supplies to the Ealing Foodbank at the close of Food Pantry at 4pm.

Alternatively, you may like to offer your house as a local hub to collect donations from neighbours.
