The foodbank has been a long running service of Hamara, supporting service users across all projects with a culturally appropriate food parcels when they have found themselves in crisis.

Due to the cost of living crisis we have seen more people of the community having to use the foodbank to support their families.

Families which were once thriving have found themselves in need of a food bank, Hamara attempts to support the community as much as possible to ensure that nobody goes hungry during these challenging times.

Our dedicated team works hard to ensure that nobody is left without something to enjoy; for those who have limited access to kitchen supplies and appliances our friendly kitchen staff make a warm and hearty meal for them.

For those who need a helping hand pop into the centre on either a Tuesday or Thursday between 12 and 1pm and the team will be happy to support you.
