Charity canapes added to event menus to fundraise for City Harvest
City Harvest is delighted to announce its partnership with By Word of Mouth, a leading event caterer. Two mouth watering City Harvest canapes will be featured on By Word Of Mouth’s 2020 event menus with a donation made every time they are ordered.
“We are so grateful for BWOM’s commitment to ‘giving back’. This collaboration educates clients on issues such as food poverty and provides a simple but hugely impactful way to raise much needed funds. City Harvest collects and delivers food, free of charge, aiming to remove barriers to people’s absolute right to food.” Laura Winningham, CEO City Harvest.
The partnership serves to educate and fundraise, reminding companies with catering budgets, of the power of making informed decisions. By offering charity options to the canape menu, By Word of Mouth offers clients the chance to acknowledge the social impact of their food choices, whilst directly helping those in need.
“The whole team at By Word of Mouth is very excited about supporting City Harvest with two fantastic and delicious charity canapes, made from offcuts and trimmings from its kitchens, with a donation made to the charity every time they are served. This initiative is a demonstration of our efforts to work sustainably and conscientiously whilst enabling us to acknowledge and contribute to the wonderful work being done by the team at City Harvest“ Rick Perry, Director By Word of Mouth.
Each week City Harvest delivers over 80,000 meals to those in need, and recently reached 8 million meals rescued since its launch in 2014. That is equivalent to £10 million worth of fresh nutritious food that would have otherwise been sent to landfill, offsetting 12,000 tons of greenhouse gases.
Knowing there is more than enough nutritious surplus food in London to feed those living in poverty, is what drives the City Harvest team. Growing our networks and increasing our capacity to deliver food is our lifeblood.
