3. About Highams Park Food Aid – Latest Newsletter
Highams Park Food Aid was set up to provide food to people in Highams Park and Chingford who needed support in obtaining food supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some of the COVID-19 lock down restrictions have been lifted but many people are still in need and Highams Park Food Aid continues to support them.

We are a joint venture between local community organisations and you can find out more about us in our latest newsletter by clicking on the link below.
