Final donations before end of season please
Remember this is your last chance to donate something before the end of the season, so please remember to put something in your bag before you set off. Peckham Foodbank has fed thousands of people since April 2012 and saw a sharp increase in the number of families turning to them for help over the past year.
"We're moved by their determination to fix it themselves. That's why so many have been going regularly without meals by the time they reach a food bank.
"Making ends meet is a precarious business for those on low incomes. It only takes an unexpected bill or rise in the cost of food to push people over the edge...all sorts of people."
