Line at London Food Bank Stretches Hundreds of Meters

A line stretched several hundred meters down two streets outside a foodbank in the Wembley area of London on Saturday, March 6, timelapse video shows.

The video was taken by Mumtaz Khan from London’s Community Kitchen, and starts at the back of the long line on Chaplin Road, leading to the foodbank at the Brent Indian Association on Ealing Road, over 700 meters away.

The charity said they served 785 families in two hours on the day the video was recorded.

In a livestream on Facebook, London’s Community Kitchen said: “On a very cold Saturday morning we are here to serve this community living in food insecurity. The queues don’t alarm us anymore. [It] has become something like the norm.” Credit: Mumtaz Khan via Storyful
