Community Action Award

2012 Winner : Store City

Store City

Store City distributes free clothing and food parcels to families and individuals who are unable to afford even the most basic of essentials needed to survive.

We are based in one of the poorest areas of the UK, Barking and Dagenham and we see Store City as an opportunity to reach people and proactively provide a hand up. We don’t make hand outs with no plan for rebuilding that persons self-sufficiency.

We care for each person we make contact with and introduce them to community organisations who can assist them in becoming self-sufficient again. If we won first prize we would build our own storage unit that will enable us to store more long life food products and clothes. By having our own storage unit we will be able to assist even more people who in need by ensuring there is always sufficient supplies stocked to meet the ever increasing demand.
