Hackney residents prepare to Trick or Eat!


As Coronavirus leaves many Londoners unsure about how to spend Halloween, residents in Hackney are ditching trick or treating in favour of Trick or Eat!


Dozens of streets have signed up to the project to show their support for Hackney Foodbank – over 50 households and shops will be putting collection boxes outside where locals can donate non-perishable food.


Organisers have created a special map so families can dress up and enjoy a Trick or Eat trail in their neighbourhood, dropping food for people in poverty along the way.


Jenna Fansa of the Local Buyers Club said, “We ran Trick or Eat last year and collected more than 1,200 meals for Hackney Foodbank with just a small number of streets. This year we’ve been overwhelmed by the response – around 50 streets have signed up. Kindness is everywhere and mid-pandemic when so many people are suffering the community is stepping up to help.


“With cases of Covid-19 increasing in the capital, knocking on doors and asking for sweets doesn’t seem like the best idea – but dropping food outside in donation boxes is a wonderful way to get dressed up and enjoy Halloween.


“I’d encourage everyone in Hackney to pick up some extra tins or packets of food while they’re out shopping this week and to enjoy an alternative Halloween on Saturday October 31st when they take the kids out and give to people in need.”

Demand for Hackney Foodbank has more than doubled since lockdown, with over 10,000 emergency food parcels handed out between March and September.

We're also donating £5 to the Hackney Foodbank for each new Local Buyers Club member until 31 Oct.

Join here using code TRICKOREAT for just £10. Members benefit from savings and perks at hundreds of local independent businesses. 

If you'd like to be a drop-off point:

  • Email if you'd like to be a drop-off point. Interest has been huge and, with limited resources, we're now only accepting households which can find a way to get the food to us in Stoke Newington on Sunday November 1.

  • We'll email you posters to print and put up in your street  and on the box.

  • Find a big box to place outside your home with a poster on Saturday October 31st

  • Text/Whatsapp your friends and neighbours and ask them for donations of non-perishable food

  • Store the food in your home until Sunday November 1st  and  deliver it to us in Stoke Newington for us to pass on to Hackney Foodbank.


Items currently in short supply at Hackney Food Bank are longlife (UHT) milk, tinned beef and bars of soap - items which are often in high demand are tinned meat, fish and vegetables, dried pasta, curry sauce, long-life juice and toiletries.
