Charities We Support

City Harvest London

We are proud to be partnered with City Harvest – surplus food from our stores is collected and goes to various shelters where it is used to help provide meals to the vulnerable – please read on for more information on this amazing charity:

City Harvest puts surplus food to good use in a sustainable way.

We get surplus food safely to the hungry

While thousands of Londoners go hungry each day, safe, healthy and usable food is being disposed of as waste. City Harvest collects this nutritious surplus food from all segments of the food industry including restaurants, grocers, manufacturers, wholesalers, hotels and caterers.

Who do we deliver to?

We provide support to organisations that feed the city’s most vulnerable people

City Harvest regularly delivers high quality, nourishing food to organisations that provide meals to vulnerable people including homeless shelters, soup kitchens, after school programs, centres for veterans, and organisations that assist people with alcohol or drug addictions.

What impact do we make?

We distribute more than 8 tonnes of food weekly

The food we deliver helps organisations serve thousands of healthy meals each week and reduce their annual grocer bills-freeing up funds that can be reinvested in other vital support services like medical care and counselling. The food we recycle is diverted from going to landfill where it would release gases toxic to the environment.

How do food donors benefit?

We provide safe, easy, reliable food rescue

We make it simple for food donors to get their nutritious food to desperate people and reduce their waste collection costs. Customers prefer to patronise sustainable restaurants and retailers. Food Donor employees experience a huge morale boost from giving to those in need. Food Donors appear daily on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds. The Sustainable Restaurant Association encourages food donations to City Harvest.

What is really important to us?

Enabling people to eat great food with dignity

City Harvest vans are greeted with excitement and pride because people know that they contain high quality food from some of the best stores in London. We redistribute food that nourishes both body and soul. Each person that is served our food regains their dignity and starts to gain the strength needed to overcome hard times. We occasionally bring flowers!
