Continuing to rescue & deliver food to London’s most vulnerable
Our vans are still on the road, City Harvest is feeding London’s most vulnerable in times of crisis.
WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP
City Harvest, a surplus food redistribution charity, is currently working overtime to deliver food to our charity partners across London and we desperately need food, funding and volunteer support. We serve thousands of vulnerable Londoners, and since the outbreak of COVID-19 we have seen the need for our services skyrocket.
“The City Harvest delivery was appreciated more than ever this week – the majority of the food was distributed between our local homeless hostel and a community project delivering food parcels to more isolated older people.”Jenny – Spitalfields City Farm
19th March – Real heroes. Our undefeatable volunteers at the depot unloading and sorting food through the night.
FOOD, FUNDING & VOLUNTEERS
In order to keep our vans delivering food across London on an emergency basis we need funds. Please donate to help us continue our service.
If you are available to volunteer, you can see our available shifts and sign up using TimeCounts. Once you set up an account you can find our volunteer handbook and our COVID-19 protocols for volunteers.
Anyone that is over age 18 and able to sort food as its donated would be a great support. Individuals from the food and hospitality industries with warehouse, driving and logistics experience could add other types of support.
City Harvest redistributes every type of food—fresh, frozen, ambient—from businesses. For food donations please contact firstname.lastname@example.org Food waste is a major contributor to climate change and in this time of great need, it’s more important than ever to make sure all unused food gets to the people who need it most.
“City Harvest provides an incredible service at the best of times. Now it feels essential. Restaurants across the country have surplus that could feed people who desperately need it and I’d encourage others to use them or a similar charity now.”Will Beckett – Hawksmoor, Founding Director/CEO
