While the Carnegie building remains closed, donations for the Norwood & Brixton Foodbank can be dropped off in a box outside 61 Ruskin Walk (our local collection manager’s address). Alternatively, he advises: “If you want to donate in person, you can drop items off to our SOUTH LONDON WAREHOUSE at St Margaret’s Church, Barcombe Avenue, Streatham, SW2 3BH, Monday – Friday 9.30am – 2.30pm. There will usually be our large blue drop boxes outside the church (weather permitting) so donations can go directly in those.”
