A PROJECT TO HELP THE FOODBANKS IN THE LONDON BOROUGH OF CAMDEN

CSFG Logo

The ultimate aim of foodbanks in the UK is that they should not need to exist. But in the meantime – please see if you can help just a bit with the incredibly important work they do.

What is Feeding Camden?

Feeding Camden is a community project set up to help the foodbanks in the London Borough of Camden cope with the growing demand from local residents who are unable to afford the food they and their families need.

What inspired Feeding Camden?

Feeding Camden is the vision of Sarah Thorogood aged 16, who attends Camden School for Girls in the London Borough of Camden.
