City Harvest

Registered Charity Number 1163055
 City Harvest rescues quality surplus food to feed vulnerable Londoners facing food poverty that would otherwise go to waste. We believe that everyone has an absolute right to food, rescuing surplus food also reduces greenhouse gases from unnecessary landfill, and strengthens communities in need. 
We deliver free food to over 300 charities groups who provide cooked meals and food parcels, including: Children & family centres, people facing food poverty, food banks, mental health charities, hostels, homeless shelters, youth centres, women's refuges, elderly, and people facing social isolation. Free food enables each charity to spend funds on other, non-food, services to help people get back on their feet such as legal advice, counselling, activities. 
People relax when they eat together, it is easier to connect with other people. Creating connections over food has proved essential to the rehabilitation of people in all the charities we deliver to any. Food unites us. Our 'Kindness is Powerful' series reveals people who use our food for good every week, year on year. There are so many kind people doing powerful things with food in the capital - we make sure they have what they need.
Over 9 million meals are missed monthly in London by individuals experiencing food insecurity. At the same time 13 million meals end up in landfill. City Harvest joins the dots matching waste with want, in a sustainable way.
