KFM’s Croydon warehouse is offering practical support to one of its neighbours the Croydon Foodbank. The Foodbank struggled with a small team and lack of donations in the face of increasing demand over the past 18 months throughout the pandemic. This prompted KFM to start a conversation with the Foodbank team about how we could offer support.

KFM is supporting the Croydon Foodbank in the following ways:
  • Offering storage space in our warehouse
  • Logistics support and planning
  • Social media and raising awareness
  • New ideas for fundraising

Throughout the peak of the pandemic, they fed and supported over 5,000 people in the borough of Croydon alone. KFM is now a prominent part of this community with two warehouses in Croydon, the team are looking forward to mentoring and working alongside the Foodbank staff.

Grace Saah-Dinnall, Foodbank Project Manager and one of the founders of Croydon Foodbank, said: “All our staff are volunteers who have connections in the borough. I became involved with Croydon Foodbank because I wanted to help those in need. I had previously been one of those people in desperate need of the foodbank. About 10 years ago I was made homeless by a local borough council. Not knowing what to do I turned to the Foodbank to help feed my baby son.”

Aleem Khan, KFM Logistics Team Leader, explains why he wanted to get involved: “It's not just about making a donation; it's about making a difference."

The Croydon Foodbank is a self-maintained charity who receive minimal funding and support despite Covid-19. To donate visit:
