Every week Nourish East End welcomes over 600 individuals, from 350+ households, to our free food market, a Daily Bread Foodbank partner.
Nourish East End acknowledges that many factors contribute to food insecurity. We want to ensure that everyone who steps through our doors has consistent and dignified access to fresh & nutritious food. Our free-food market is set-up so our clients can freely select any food, or personal care items, that work best for themselves and their families.
