City Harvest To The Rescue
“I love volunteering at City Harvest. All the staff are very friendly, also the volunteers. The atmosphere is very homely. We are like a family. I enjoy going there each time. I would go more often if I could. I would encourage anyone to be a volunteer at City Harvest.” Pam
Our Recipient Partners
Some of the 300 community organisations receiving City Harvest food deliveries:
Acton Homeless Concern is a local centre where those who are homeless can find food, clothing, friendship, and advocacy. More than 250 vulnerable people are served meals each day using City Harvest's nutritious ingredients.
Bubble & Squeak is a brand new kids ran social enterprise based in East Acton, London.
The children learn about healthy eating and the perils of waste, then redistribute surplus fruit and veg from City Harvest deliveries to local parents from Old Oak Primary School's Playground.
The Upper Room is a front line charity working with socially and economically disadvantaged people from some of the most deprived areas of London. More than 100 people are fed each day with excellent surplus food from City Harvest.
140 men and women sleep more safely each evening during the cold winter months because of the wonderful work that the teams at Glass Door/West London Churches Night Shelters do. Volunteers set beautiful tables helping vulnerable people eat with dignity. City Harvest food helps nourish those who come in from the cold.
The organisation supports children and families from the local community with a key aim of providing learning opportunities whilst enhancing life skills. City Harvest provides food to support their daily breakfast and after school club.
FoodCycle is a national charity that runs local projects where volunteers are trained to cook healthy, tasty, three-course meals with surplus food. Food is served with warmth and dignity to those facing poverty and social isolation. City Harvest supports with regular deliveries to FoodCycle projects across London, as well as for one-off events.
SEAPIA meets the needs of the community by providing a hub where children can express themselves freely, the elderly and isolated residents can meet to socialize with the younger generation over a warm meal with food delivered by City Harvest.
A small social enterprise offering positive, meaningful activities to people on low incomes or at risk of loneliness, poverty and isolation. City Harvest food is used in warm meals at this supportive environment.
