City Harvest Rapid Response Heroes Rescue 6 Million Meals

London's First 'Last Mile' Food Redistribution Charity Reaches Landmark Figures

We are so grateful to announce that we have delivered our 6 millionth meal! With your help and support City Harvest has collected and redistributed surplus food to serve nutritious meals to hungry and vulnerable Londoners living in poverty.

9.2 million meals are missed monthly because of food poverty

13.4 million meals are wasted monthly by businesses

City Harvest to the rescue!

We work with over 300 community programs and 130 food donors. To date we have rescued more than 2,400 tonnes of nutritious food surplus.

A recent study determined that for every £1

invested in City Harvest

we deliver £8.10 in social impact value.


City Harvest, established 2014, London’s first food redistribution charity. Rescuing food surplus and delivering to those who need it the most, chilled vans form rapid response units connecting waste and want, 7 days a week throughout the capital.

An estimated 27% of London’s population live in poverty and face hunger. Thousands of tonnes of food are wasted daily, and City Harvest London helps address this problem.

Free of charge, City Harvest vans collect and deliver 80,000 meals a week from supermarkets, wholesale markets, manufacturers and the hospitality industry. Our trademark fleet of temperature-controlled vans deliver to over 300 London community programmes, including: homeless shelters, mental health community projects, family centres, childrens’ programmes, and domestic abuse refuges.


We have a list of fun things you and your office/ company/ friends can do to help; ranging from really easy, 'no effort required' to adrenaline rushing, Olympian challenges!

If you would like to get involved, we'd love to hear from you.
