ICSS is continuing to work with other charities in particular sharing resources from the food bank arm with other food banks in the local borough of Redbridge. 

Due to the cost of living crisis and increase in cost of basic food items as well as energy costs, more people are struggling and coming to the food banks to request staple food items such as tinned good, fresh fruit and vegetables, sugar and non-perishable items. ICSS is working with Foodbanked and Helping Hopes which both have dedicated volunteers committed to providing food and essential items. Please do consider donating to these worthy causes and check out their websites and social media pages.

ICSS is also now receiving donations of surplus chicken from KFC in Ilford through Fareshare which is a great bonus. particularly for those who can’t afford to have a meal at KFC.
