Find out about our Food Hub

When Covid-19 struck back in March 2020, there was a huge increase in the number of people struggling to access food and basic goods.

Pembroke House moved fast to respond, setting up the Walworth Community Food Hub – an emergency food distribution operation – just days into the first lockdown. The Food Hub ran from April 2020 to August 2021.

Each week, a team of volunteers sorted and packed food parcels. These parcels were then delivered by volunteer couriers – mostly by bike but with some on foot – to hundreds of local homes.

The Food Hub in numbers

In total, the Walworth Community Food Hub delivered 340 tonnes of food in more than 40,000 food parcels.

Over four hundred volunteers contributed 33,000 hours at the Food Hub between March 2020 and August 2021.

Thanks go to…

…an enormous number of organisations and individuals, including:

  • FareShare, who donated food supplies to the Hub each week
  • a huge range of other partner organisations, including many businesses from Walworth and further afield
  • 40 partners who refered people to the Hub
  • our volunteers
  • Pembroke House’s donors and supporters

And of course the funders who made the Walworth Community Food Hub possible:

Thank you all!
