The Community Food Distribution Project – Goody Bags

The Community Food Distribution Project – Goody Bags opens every Wednesday at  Venture Centre 103a Wornington Rd, London W10 5YB for those who may be struggling to buy food.

Please arrive to register from 1.30pm.

You will then be given a ticket and a time slot and asked to return to collect your food bag between 2.30-4.30pm. In order to use the service, you will need to register.

This can be done in person on the day but if you would like to fill in a form in advance please click here. The service is free; our clients choose what items they wish from our food variety.

We are unable to allow access to the centre for the users, in order to maintain social distancing and safeguard our staff/volunteers; people will be asked to queue outside and will be called one by one to choose and collect what items they wish. We are lucky enough to work  in partnership with Venture Centre, City Harvest, GMGG and the Love Your Neighbour (LYN) programme via HTB.  

What do we have at the centre?
The open food distribution project prides itself in being unique to other foodbanks. We have fresh fruit and vegetables, healthy ready meals and other tins / long life food. We promote healthy eating during this project to provide long term health benefits for everyone.

Sanitary products and incontinence pads are also available through our Bleeding Hearts Project, in partnership with the Bloody Good Period organization. The cost of sanitary products is something which many women struggle to meet. The average cost of having a period is £4,800! We believe no woman should suffer the challenge of purely being a woman.
