Donate your leftover currency to Hackney FoodBank

Hackney FoodBank – Thank you so much for your support and for joining us in our journey for a hunger-free Hackney, where everyone can afford to eat. These past couple of years have been challenging but with your help, we can provide emergency food and access to important services to thousands of people in crisis in East London.

All donations will enable individuals and families who are living in crisis or trapped in poverty in Hackney and provide the opportunities to link these families to organisations relevant to their type of crisis, increasing their feelings of hope that change is possible, and giving them the very best chance address the underlying causes of their poverty.

It’s easy to donate your leftover currency to Hackney FoodBank. To get started, download and fill out the Hackney FoodBank currency donation form.
