Project Background

The main objective of the project is to help those who are struggling to make ends meet. We will provide an emergency weeks worth of groceries to individuals and families who have accommodation but are going through a crisis. The ICEC Food Bank runs twice a week from our centre.  All our food parcels contain enough content to suffice an average size family for a week.

How to claim

There are 2 ways you can use the food bank programme:

1) Vouchers

We have partnered with a number of institutions in Wandsworth such as schools, GPs, Citizens Advice Bureau and Katherine Lowe. The partners will carry an assessment and send us the details .

2) Self Referral

You can complete the self referral form below. If you need help completing the form please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

Food collection

The Food back collection service runs twice a week; Thursday at 10am and Sunday at 12.30pm.

We can also drop it off as part of the drop off service.  The drop off service is particularly useful for individuals who are high risk or have mobility issues and are unable to visit the food bank.

Other way you can help

Donations – We have a food donation point located in the main foyer of the mosque. You can also make donations through our JutGiving page https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/icecfoodbank
