About us

Sufra NW London addresses both the causes and consequences of extreme poverty, homelessness and social isolation in the community. Our emergency interventions and innovative courses provide a life-line to people in crisis – empowering them to improve their wellbeing, learn new skills, find work and become financially stable.



Our Food Bank, Community Kitchen and other services are only possible thanks to the generous donations we receive from individuals, local organisations and businesses. With your support, we can ensure that no one in our community goes hungry.

Our Guests


From the moment our guests access the Food Book and speak with our volunteers, our aim is to provide them with all the support they need to transition from crisis and desperation to independence, wellbeing and re-integration in the community.

Get help


Can’t afford to buy food? We can provide you and your family with emergency food and toiletries, as well as ongoing support and advice.

Directory of Local Services


We have put together a comprehensive Directory of Local Services that provide specialist assistance for people struggling with a wide range of issues.


Food Bank is open Tuesdays and Thursdays (11am – 3pm).

Get involved

If you are passionate about helping people overcome poverty and isolation, there are many ways you can support our work – such as by volunteering, donating essential supplies, referring clients, fundraising or even connecting with us on social media.
