Food Pantry

 

Our partnership work with FareShare has earned us the priviledge to further support our community. Together, we fight poverty and its consequential hunger, illhealth and low life expectancy.

Food Pantry opens on Wednesdays at 6pm after FareShare food delivery. We accept referrals for free food collection from statutory, 3rd sector organisations and individuals. With nothing to prove desperate needs, we are willing to serve everyone in a friendly and inclusive environment.        

crEATe

A pilot healthy eating and lifestyle positive activities initiative of Barnet Youth Services in 2012 has attracted a lot of young people and their parents to look at eating culture differently.  Obesity and low educational performance are some of the risks of poor eating which is mostly connected to social economic position of the individuals.                                                                                

Since the pilot scheme, there had not been financial support to take this further until John Lyon's Charity funding to tackle Youth Issues in 2014.  The sessions were oversubscribed, we painfully had to turn people away.  This may have contributed to the equally oversubscribed 2015 Summer Holiday Activity, also funded by John Lyon's Charity.     Financial and food products will be thankfully received from donors in aid of our drive for health and wellbeing of the children and young people in our community.  Please visit our Media section for some of the pictures during crEATe sessions.
