Purley Food Hub – Nov 2017

PFH logoPurley 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 thanks everyone for their ongoing support and reports,

“Following hot on the heels of the Food Hub’s busiest ever September, we have now had our busiest ever October, providing on average over 300 meals to families and others in crisis at each of the month’s eight sessions.  Already in 2017 we have passed last year’s overall total of 21,000 meals, with November and December still to come…


This past month we have been blessed with some big food donations from the churches of Purley, Kenley, South Croydon, Coulsdon and the surrounding area plus from 21 local schools – as well as from our friends at Rotary, the WI, Croydon Communities Consortium, uniformed groups and many families and individuals…and with the support of Get Fired!, Café Blue and the Purley branch of Nationwide Building Society.


And yet, with the run-up to Christmas firmly in mind, we know we must maintain our stock levels….”

Any donations would be very welcome!
