The BFC is a food hub based in the crypt of St George the Martyr Church on Borough High Street. A stones throw from busy Borough Market and bustling London Bridge. We operate 3 times a week as a pantry style food hub, our mission is simple yet strong,
Fighting Food Costs, Fighting Food Waste.
The BFC is open to everyone, regardless of income or location. Membership is £4.50 per visit, and members can choose up to 16 items from a variety of grocery items like fresh fruit and vegetables, chilled items, frozen ready-meals, dry goods, and personal care and cleaning products.
The BFC was set up by St. George the Martyr Church in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the help of many fabulous volunteers, we began preparing and delivering food parcels to nearby households and families. The response was so positive that we developed our project into a pantry model, volunteer-operated Food Hub in October 2020.
Without the incredible support and generosity of St George the Martyr we would not be able to operate.
We are also incredibly fortunate to be supported by our corporate partners who have made a huge impact on our project. We benefit greatly from our links with Natixis, ThirdEye Consulting and Roundhouse Financial Services.
We are immensely grateful to our partners at The Felix Project and FareShare, vendors at Borough Market , St.John's Bakery and other local businesses for their amazing donations that make up most of our stock.
We also partner with some other wonderful organisations to deliver a more comprehensive service. Check ‘em out here!
The BFC is a valuable resource for the local community. We are helping to reduce food waste, make healthy food more affordable, and build a more sustainable food system. If you are looking for a way to get involved in your community and make a difference, the BFC is a great option.
