Help with food if you can’t afford it
Many voluntary and community organisations are offering help with food for Enfield’s diverse community. If you need urgent food supplies and can’t afford them, you can:
- ask your local food bank for emergency food or support
- visit Enfield Food Alliance for information about local organisations providing food support to residents
You could also try the OLIO food sharing app, a free app allowing neighbours to offer perfectly good, unwanted food to each other. Everything shared on OLIO is free. They have also developed safe sharing ‘no-contact pickups’ in response to COVID-19.
To view food banks in your area, zoom into the map below and click on the blue pins.
