Advice & Support

About Advice & Support

Since 2013 we have been developing this service to run alongside Tower Hamlets Foodbank. We sit down with every person who comes to our foodbank, to listen to their story and understand why they are facing crisis in their life.

Meet Martin

Speak to anyone who’s ever visited Tower Hamlets Foodbank in desperate times and it’s almost certain that Martin Williams’ name will be mentioned. He’ll probably be called an angel or a hero.

Donate time

We have a very small team, so any time you can give will make a difference – from helping at our office, assisting at our foodbank, or sorting food at our warehouse. We couldn’t do it without you.
