Supporting First Love Foundation – Tower Hamlets Foodbank And Support For People In Crisis
Established in 2010, Tower Hamlets Foodbank has worked to tackle the causes of hidden hunger in Tower Hamlets. It is a project of First Love Foundation which has recently re-branded in recognition of the additional support services it offers to individuals and families who face crisis in one of the UK’s most deprived boroughs. Our Account Executive, Cathy Wickens, has volunteered at the foodbank and we’ve recently become a corporate supporter.
Tower Hamlets Foodbank has helped thousands of individuals and families facing crisis in Tower Hamlets where 49% of children live in poverty. Not only does it supply food to those in need, their Advice & Support service, which consists of a partnership with the Child Poverty Action Group and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, means that everyone referred to the foodbank receives the help and support they need in a holistic and long-term way. They not only find a way out of their immediate crisis, but receive support to enable them to transform their lives. We’ve helped First Love Foundation team by editing this short film which they’ve made to demonstrate the value of the work they do.
