City Harvest delivers free surplus food to people across London facing food poverty

We believe in the human right to food and that children should thrive, not just survive. Our drivers are part of the fabric of London, ensuring the right food gets to the right people at the right time.

People we help

Sharing food and nourishing others is one of the simplest and most powerful ways to demonstrate how we care for others.

City Harvest is dedicated to doing this throughout London and beyond. We deliver food to grassroots organisations that serve some of London’s most vulnerable residents, including children via schools, youth projects, religious groups, and more.

By ensuring children have a healthy start to life, we help people thrive not survive. City Harvest’s Community Impact Team provides direction for our food, making sure if gets to the right places at the right time. It is vital for us to maintain close relationships with our recipients, to keep abreast of their needs. Our drivers have regular drop offs and become part of the family for many of our groups and projects across London.

City Harvest makes an impact with LEYF nurseries

City Harvest makes an impact with LEYF nurseries

City Harvest free food has been making an impact with LEYF nurseries across London, utilising surplus food to help support children from disadvantaged backgrounds with additional hours at nursery. These children are ineligible for the extra hours simply because their parents are either unemployed or on low incomes. LEYF, alongside City Harvest, is on a mission to provide equal opportunities to all children, giving them the step up they need in life through nutritious food and early years stimulation.
