Food Corner is a weekly market that makes food affordable for everyone.
Come and select food and essentials for a small contribution.
It takes place in Hope House, St George’s Gateshead (opposite the Cenotaph)
Food Corner is for everyone, always. There is no need to request or be referred.
We will also be running Hope House Coffee Co alongside – initially providing you with complimentary tea or coffee to go, but in future you will also be able to stay and enjoy a selection of warm meals and snacks, or just a cup of tea and a piece of cake.
If you are in urgent need of a parcel of food, you can request one from our emergency foodbank. Our foodbank is open weekly on a Tuesday and you can collect your parcel from Hope House (if you require delivery, please note this on the request).
You can refer yourself once (you’ll only need to have a quick chat to one of our team), but for future requests we will ask for an additional referral, for example the council or any charity or support worker you may have contact with.
