When Covid-19 forced London into Lockdown, WarnerMedia and Warner Bros. Studios helped City Harvest scale up our response in a time of extreme need, and that support enabled City Harvest to deliver food for 40,000 meals to hungry Londoners.
City Harvest works with caterers at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, making sure that food from film sets and catering is not wasted and goes to those in need. City Harvest collects and distributes surplus food to its 300 plus charities in London who receive free food to cook or parcel up for those who would otherwise not eat.
“At Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden we are delighted to partner with City Harvest as it means any surplus food we have reaches people who really need it. The charity supports a wide range of organisations and does a great job of helping the hungry while also reducing waste,” Emily Stillman, SVP Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.
The amount of food collected and delivered each week doubled over lockdown, we now have 3 depots in Acton and one in New Spitalfields. Our fleet of vans has expanded and we are able to react to London’s growing need better than ever.
“We are so grateful to WarnerMedia. for recognising the need and supporting our far-reaching work. Our mission is to ensure that people do not necessarily go hungry when there is surplus food. These are changing times and we all need to act responsibly and from the heart.” Laura Winningham, CEO City Harvest.
