is the united response of the Christians of Purley & Kenley Churches Together to the growing food need in our communities in Croydon. A charity has been formed to carry forward the work of the Food Hub: it is Purley & Kenley Churches Together Food Hub (Charity number 1152807).
To help people in crisis who are without food. They may have become unemployed, been sick or had a sudden change in their domestic circumstances. They may have had their benefits stopped and are appealing against the decision. A series of events coming together may have left them unable to buy food to meet their basic needs. We are seeking to avoid creating long-term dependencies.
The Food Hub is not a drop in. Food is given only to people who have one of the Food Hub’s food tickets. They take the ticket to the our food distribution centre in central Purley. There they are made welcome and receive a supply of food for three days. The allowance reflects the size of the family.
By donating food or money at one of our regular collections. We are also drawing up a list of contacts we can call on when increased demand has left us short of particular foods. Money donations are very welcome. Any donations are gratefully received and will contribute to this important work in the community for those who are in need of emergency need and support.
