Enfield Women’s Centre has been operating a Food Distribution Service (now a Food Bank) for a few years now working specifically with women and families who are referred via Social Service, Court, Schools and similar agencies as they are new to the Borough and in general escaping violence or in another vulnerable category.
At the outset of lockdown in March 2020 we joined a consortium of groups working to ensure provision of food, medical supplies and other essentials to those in need, isolation and unwell. Out of this collaboration has grown the LBE initiative Enfield Food Poverty Alliance of which we are a member. We were also invited to join the Marcus Rashford group End Child Food Poverty.
We have a wonderful team working on this project sorting, packing food into bags and delivering. There are three sorting in the office, and we have five voluntary drivers who collect donations and then deliver food to all the families on our list each week. We also pass on clothes, toys, books, etc as women request them.
We find we need also donations to help us cover the cost of the fuel for our delivery drivers. In addition we want to try and cover the cost of toiletries and other items women need. This organisation has a very small budget and appreciates all the help and support we can get to help us do this vital work.
