It's been a really busy few months at City Harvest, with hugely positive outcomes. We have doubled the volume of food we collect and redistribute year on year to our charity partners, delivering more than 4 million meals in London during the COVID crisis. Your support has enabled us to take on more people to source and redistribute food, add new vans to our fleet and take on a larger food redistribution centre at our Acton HQ.
We are now braced and ready for whatever this autumn brings.
We are expecting to see food poverty spike as unemployment figures climb and the furlough scheme ends. To that end we are determined to keep the issue of hunger and food waste in the public eye, which is why we are launching our first City Harvest Festival Campaign.
This is the time of year when traditionally people share food with those less fortunate, so we will use this theme to highlight our work during the campaign.
Laura Winningham, CEO, City Harvest London
"City Harvest gives thanks on a daily basis for your generous donations, it's what keeps our 15 vans rolling and our team working relentlessly to redistribute food to over 300 charities, food that would otherwise be wasted.
As you, your friends, family, and colleagues donate Virtual Food Boxes during this Harvest Festival we will together feed thousands of people.
To join in the spirit of the harvest season, I hope you enjoy reading the incredible stories and viewing the free open-air exhibition in Portman Square Garden over the Harvest Festival weekend, all part of our 'Kindness is Powerful’ series."
Kindness is Powerful
'Kindness is Powerful' series is a collection of photographs & stories celebrating the kindness of helping one another & the powerful solutions food provides to social problems.
City Harvest worked with photographer, and leader at Ealing Soup Kitchen, Andrew McLeay to capture the kindness of people who use our food to feed those in need.
City Harvest vans deliver free food to over 300 charities helping those facing food-poverty every day.
Part of Baker Street Quarter event
