City Harvest appeal
City Harvest vans are still on the road, feeding London’s most vulnerable. They are currently working overtime to deliver food to their 300 charity partners across London and desperately need food, funding and volunteer support. City Harvest serve thousands of vulnerable Londoners, and since the outbreak of COVID-19 they have seen the need for their services skyrocket.
The charity collects surplus food from donors (usually supermarkets and restaurants) and delivers it to 300 community organisations. In the last 12 months, they have delivered food for more than 3.5 million meals to their partners and they are still operating now.
“We are at the forefront of London’s emergency planning, as provisions are made by the city, food industry and non-profit groups to meet the growing demand to supply basic food to an increasing number of people
- Every £50 donated will help us feed 200 Londoners
- £50,000 keeps all our vans on the road for the next 5 weeks
- £1,000 enables 1 van to deliver 10,000 meals
‘If you are able to donate money, please do so here.
‘If you are available to volunteer, you can see our available shifts and sign up here. We have implemented new protocols to keep our drivers, food donors and community partners healthy and safe, including non-contact delivery’.
