This is the first year of City Harvest’s annual awards, to acknowledge the incredible support of donors and suppliers, that have facilitated City Harvest to serve almost 7 million nutritious meals to those facing food poverty in London.
The eye-catching green awards are cleverly designed to honour the sites of organisations that are helping rescue food surplus in the capital. #cityharvestplaques

63% of the fruit and vegetable donations from markets City Harvest received from January to September this year was provided by New Covent Garden Market. Gary has been instrumental in promoting the work we do amongst the traders.
“Redirecting surplus food to those in need is a combination of logistics and people wanting to do the right thing. City Harvest is so happy to acknowledge those who support our work making an impact in the world of food surplus rescue. Not only are these companies helping feed the hungry in a sustainable way, they are reducing harmful green-house gas emissions from landfill.”
Laura Winningham CEO.

Students from The Harrodian School have organised events and made donations, not only to City Harvest , but to others in the area. The school encourages its students to engage in the community and connect to the people they are helping.

LONDON'S FIRST FOOD SURPLUS REDISTRIBUTION CHARITY
City Harvest, established 2014, London’s first last-mile food redistribution charity. Rescuing food surplus and delivering to those who need it most, chilled vans form rapid response units 7 days a week throughout the capital. Over 25% of Londoners face poverty, with 9.2 million meals missed monthly because of food poverty. Conversely, 13.3 million meals are wasted monthly by businesses. City Harvest is based in Acton and will be opening a new depot in New Spitalfields Market October 2019 to help feed more vulnerable Londoners.
