About SUFRA

Sufra is a charity in North West London that prevents hunger, fights poverty and builds community.

With the help of our volunteers and partners, we coordinate a network of food banks, kitchens, a community shop and café. These act as a gateway for guests to access more holistic support – including welfare advice, asylum support and our award-winning community garden.

We aim to work with our guests to find solutions to their challenges together, whilst campaigning against the causes of hunger and poverty.

Meet Our Guests

Sufra NW London is based in St. Raphael’s Estate in the London Borough of Brent, one of London’s most disadvantaged housing estates. However, we operate our network of 2 Food Bank hubs and 4 Community Kitchens in different parts of the same borough, and all in areas with some of the highest levels of poverty in Brent and across London. Whilst we can support people from other boroughs, almost all of our service users reside in Brent.
