DescriptionWandsworth Foodbank provides emergency food to people in need from several distribution centres across Wandsworth, including centres in Battersea, Putney, Southfields and Tooting.

To collect emergency food from the service, you must first be provided with a voucher from a frontline professional who has identified that you are in need. This voucher can then be exchanged at one of the foodbank centres for a three-day supply of emergency food. Volunteers meet clients over a cup of tea or hot meal and are able to signpost them to other services that can help resolve the underlying problem.

The foodbank is open 7 days a week, in different locations (see 'further information' below for each location's full address):
