A network of foodbank collection points at 34 homes across Aldersbrook, Wanstead and South Woodford have collectively received over 10 tonnes of donations since the initiative was launched at the end of April.

“Redbridge Foodbank is getting four times more referrals every week than before the pandemic and is totally reliant on donations. The Tin in the Bin Network has made a huge difference, and we are one of their major suppliers!” said James Paterson, who established the network with Julie Harvey.
