The Hornbeam Centre & COVID-19

The Hornbeam Centre recognises the need generated by the social-distancing and isolation measures coming to bear on the population and we want to support all our residents that are vulnerable and in self isolation.


  • We are operating as a Community Food Distribution Centre providing freshly cooked nutritious ready meals on a pay as you feel basis.
  • Cafe hours for collecting meals 12 – 3 pm. Questions? Call 07492915531

Hornbeam Solidarity

Like other groups working across boroughs and in smaller communities, we’re setting up a volunteer network that can cook meals and distribute food supplies. Through our partners, we are aiming to reach people who may need support with food, groceries or other acts of solidarity.

Email Anne with any questions or sign up below.

We are looking to grow our pool of amazing volunteers to help us with deliveries, cooking, food sorting etc. This is an opportunity for us to show up for our community with kindness, solidarity and care.

If you have some time and would like to volunteer:

  • We are not currently looking for volunteers at the moment but please revisit this page monthly for any changes with this.
  • Why not check out our friends at The Farm Community Kitchen in Leytonstone for volunteering opportunities?
