Access information.

The food bank is open on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 am for registration, with distribution normally starting at 10:00 am. The session finishes at 12:30 pm, so last arrivals should ideally be 12:15 pm.

For the session, you should come to the WECH community centre, Athens Gardens, Chantry Close, W9 3RS. The community centre can be accessed by turning off Elgin Avenue onto Chantry close and following the road around, as seen by the pictures below.

Outside of distribution hours, people dropping off donations or collecting emergency referrals should come to the WECH office, 416 Harrow Road, W9 2HX. The office is open 9:30am-5: 30 pm Mon-Thur and 9:30am-12: 30 pm on Friday. Emergency collections should have times pre-agreed so that the packages can be prepared.
