The Central Southwark Community Hub will offer the following services:

A food parcel of three days food is given to the client when they arrive at the Foodbank centre, depending on the size of the family. They offer a warm welcoming atmosphere and tea/coffee, biscuits with free advice and signposting to other appropriate support services, helping to address the underlining cause.
