Help with food

Epsom & Ewell Foodbank

Epsom & Ewell Foodbank don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why they provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to them in crisis. They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

For more details on how to donate or get help please visit the Epsom & Ewell Foodbank's website.

Surrey Epsom Pantry

For a small weekly subscription of £5, members at the Surrey Epsom Pantry will be able to purchase a weekly food shop including fresh fruit and vegetables and family favourites to stock up the cupboard and fridge. Anyone can join the Pantry, and further details can be found by visiting their website.

Cooking on a budget

There are lots of ways to save money and make your food go further. Jack Monroe (aka Bootstrap Cook) is a former foodbank user and food poverty campaigner who’s carved a career out of sharing budget recipes designed with the simplest, cheapest ingredients. Check out the Cooking on a Bootstrap website.

Too Good to Go

Every day, delicious, fresh food goes to waste at cafes, restaurants, hotels, shops and manufacturers – just because it hasn’t sold in time.

The Too Good To Go app lets you buy and collect this food – at a great price – so it gets eaten instead of wasted. You won’t know exactly what’s in your order until you pick it up – it’s all part of the surprise.
