“City Harvest helps put surplus food to good use in a sustainable way, by distributing to organisations that feed the hungry”

City Harvest, established in 2014, is London’s first ‘last-mile’ food redistribution charity.

Based in Acton and Leyton (New Spitalfield’s Market), we rescue surplus food and deliver to those who need it most, with chilled vans forming rapid response units, collecting surplus food 7 days a week and distributing throughout the capital.

Free of charge, City Harvest vans collect and deliver 200,000 meals a week from supermarkets, wholesale markets, manufacturers, and the hospitality industry, delivering to over 350 London community programmes, including homeless shelters, soup kitchens, hostels, community projects, family centres, children’s programmes, mental health support schemes, and domestic abuse refuges.

By volunteering with us, you will have the chance to make a direct positive impact on thousands of vulnerable people in London. Because of the time you donate to helping City Harvest, many Londoners facing obstacles such as homelessness, food poverty, and/or domestic abuse will have access to a nutritious meal.

How you can help

Volunteer - practical skills

We need packers, stackers, sorters and porters to keep the vans rolling so that thousands of vulnerable people in London don't go hungry!
