Ensuring that everyone in our local community has food on their table is a key area of concern for Nunhead Knocks. In response, we have established NunUnFed.

  • Collecting food donations to provide local people, community groups and food banks with food parcels
  • A service to prepare and deliver hot meals to those who are unable to cook for themselves

Hot meals

Each week volunteer chefs, drivers and partnered restaurants are delivering hundreds of cooked meals to our local residents who are, for one reason or another, not able to cook for themselves. We follow strict health and safety procedures to prepare and deliver all food (all volunteers involved in this initiative are required to read and acknowledge this guidance)

Request a hot meal | Refer someone for cooked meals

Food parcels

We prepare food parcels for individuals and households across the area who have requested our support, using items and funds donated by local residents and businesses. Parcels are delivered direct to your door if you are self-isolating.

What's inside a box?

The contents can vary depending on donations but a standard food box will typically include pasta, rice, tinned tomatoes, soup, tuna, chickpeas, cereal, tea or coffee, loo paper and basic toiletries.

Request a food parcel

Let us know you need a food parcel by getting in touch.

Refer someone for a food parcel

If you have a friend, family member or neighbour that you think could benefit from a food parcel, let us know using this form. A member of the NunUnFed team will get in touch to find out more.
