Purley Food Hub is a food bank that helps local people in crisis who are without food.
It was set up in January 2013 by the 12 churches that then made up Churches Together in Purley & Kenley.
We became a registered charity with elected Trustees in July 2013.
Clients are referred to us by a network of around 130 Food Ticket Partners. These are agencies and professionals across Croydon borough who work closely with people in crisis.
They include Jobcentres, teams and departments of Croydon Council, hostels and refuges, children’s centres and schools, and a wide range of voluntary organisations.
We are run entirely by volunteers – we currently have around 150 from the churches and local community. Food is donated by local churches, schools, businesses, uniformed groups, community organisations like the Rotary Club and Women’s Institute and many families and individuals.
