The Twelve Apostles Greek Orthodox Church in Kentish Lane, Brookmans Park, have started the new year by launching a new food redistribution hub.

Everyone has suffered, in one way or another, by the current Covid-19 pandemic and multiple national lockdowns over the last 10 months.  Sadly, many local families have been directly affected through bereavement, unemployment, reduced hour contracts, furlough, poor health, loneliness, mental health problems and even homelessness.  Indeed, many individuals find themselves struggling to feed their own families.  This is where the 12 Apostles Food Bank wants to help.

There is a growing team of young volunteers, working alongside Father Joseph Paliouras and Father Demitrianos, who meet every Saturday morning to pack food parcels and make deliveries all over Hertfordshire and North London.

Many organisations and willing parties are coming forward pledging time, money and food to help this cause.  The Twelve Apostles Food Bank is currently supporting three other food banks, one North London school as well as local families in need.  As word gets out, these important links and contacts are growing and developing with every passing day.

Going forward, even with these current travel restrictions, The Twelve Apostles food bank hopes to support local children’s services as well as community centres.

If you would like to join the volunteers at The Twelve Apostles food bank by packing or driving kindly contact the church office on t: +44 (0) 1707 650147.  If you prefer to make a food donation, kindly bring your food parcels 9am-5pm Monday-Saturday and 9am-1pm on Sundays to;

The Twelve Apostles Church, Kentish Lane,

Brookmans Park, Hatfield, Hertfordshire AL9 6NG
