Please donate to help get food to where it's needed most

Please help us to support our community with food during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Food Hub is volunteer-powered, but essential training, administration and running our depot comes at a cost.  More than half of our volunteer drivers have had to withdraw because they are vulnerable or supporting others.   Help us train the new drivers waiting in the wings and pay for essential operating costs so that we can get free surplus food where its needed most.
