Mayor of Hounslow

Mayor's charities

The Mayor of the London Borough of Hounslow, Councillor Karen Smith, has chosen Hounslow Community FoodBox (Charity Number 1170666) as her charity for the duration of her Mayoral year.

Hounslow Community FoodBox was set up in 2012 and started delivering emergency food to those in need from April 2013. They are a volunteer run registered charity (2016). The service was set up in response to the rising number of people facing poverty in the London Borough of Hounslow. The FoodBox service was created to help prevent poverty and support those in a time of need with both essential food supplies and assistance to get their lives back on track. Each year the number of people supported by FoodBox has increased, and the many success stories continue to inspire and encourage their volunteers to give even more time and personal support.

FoodBox has evolved into an important and vital part of the community, supporting those in need across the London Borough of Hounslow. Their service has been flexible and agile, reflecting the feedback and changing needs of both the clients they support and their referral partners. Working with key partners ensures that not only can they provide emergency food, but they can signpost those seeking support and advice to additional services in the borough. At FoodBox they are proud of the personal and confidential service that they offer to anyone in need of help and support.
