Purley Food Hub is a registered charity, keen to receive donations to support their work.
It serves people in need in Croydon, not just the immediate Purley area.
Purley Food Hub appreciates the generous food donations received from community groups, churches and schools and individuals to support their work.
Purley Food Hub thanks everyone for their ongoing support and reports,
“Another busy month in June saw us provide more than 2,200 meals to people going through hard times – followed by nearly 300 meals on Saturday at our first session of July. So, we are most grateful for the excellent response we have had to our June food list and to our urgent appeal to the churches two weeks ago for specific items to replenish our low stocks, as well as all the donations we received over the past weekend at Purley Festival.
One grateful woman came up to us at our stand at the Festival and said: ‘I will never forget Purley Food Hub: I had no money to buy food and you helped me in my hour of need. Now I do have money and I can put food in your collection box, and also help people who don’t have money themselves. Thank you so much – I will always remember you.’
Purley Food Hub is particularly seeking the following items this month:
Other ways to help
Purley Food Hub also welcomes financial donations to support their work. Financial donations are used to buy special items needed, including formula milk, nappies and sanitary items as well as pre-paid bus fares for clients to make the trip home with heavy bags of tinned food.
