City Harvest is a lodon based charity that puts surplus food to good use in a sustainable way, transporting surplus food safely to the hungry.
Thousands of Londoners go hungry each day, yet safe, healthy and usable food is being disposed of as waste. City Harvest collects nutritious surplus food from restaurants, grocers, manufacturers, wholesalers, hotels and caterers and delivers it to organisations that provide meals to vulnerable people including homeless shelters, soup kitchens, centres for veterans, and organisations that assist people with alcohol or drug addictions.
City Harvest help vulnerable people throughout London, distributing five tonnes of food weekly. The food it delivers helps organisations serve thousands of healthy meals each week and reduce their annual grocer bills, freeing up funds for use in other vital support services like medical care and counselling. The food it rescues is stopped from going to landfill, where it would release gases toxic to the environment.
Chronic hunger & food waste are major problems in our capital. Today, tonnes of food will go to landfill. City Harvest delivers surplus food to feed the hungry.
