More than 90 businesses and households across Hackney and Walthamstow took part in Trick or Eat 2021 - collecting vital supplies for local food banks.
The event collected around three tonnes of food for Hackney Foodbank and the PL84U AL-SUFFA food bank in Walthamstow. Read all about it.
In 2021 Trick or Eat collected five tonnes (four lorries) of food for people experiencing hardship. Residents from dozens of Hackney streets put collection boxes outside their homes and encouraged local families to donate non-perishable food while out trick or treating.
Jenna Fansa, of the Local Buyers Club, said: “For families who are worried about trick or treating, Trick or Eat is a lovely, safe way of enjoying Halloween and helping people who are experiencing hard times.
Each our toy appeal distributes new toys to thousands of children experiencing extreme poverty in London. Please buy a gift for a child in need. This year we have a wish-list, enabling you to buy online with a lovely local independent toy shop or you can donate in person. Check out the Winter Toy Appeal page for more info on how to support.
