Help feed communities in need

Here's how we can help feed our vulnerable communities during these difficult times.

In these unprecedented times for every single one of us, we are trying to find ways to support our industry in the most challenging period we’ve ever encountered. We're here to support our community.

Over the years we have built a great partnership with City Harvest, a charity that redistributes unwanted food to help the hungry - when orders are cancelled last-minute, we redistribute these meals with City Harvest. These donations continue to make a huge difference.

We have now teamed up with Imperial College NHS Foundation Trust to help support three hospitals in West London who are able to receive eligible food donations. 

If you're looking for ways to help support the community, whether it's a one-off order or weekly lunch, you can still donate food orders to be redirected to one of our charitable partners, depending on who is most at-need at that moment:

  • City Harvest - distributing food to organisations that feed the vulnerable
  • Imperial College NHS Foundation Trust
  • St. Mary's Hospital (Paddington)
  • Charing Cross Hospital
  • Hammersmith Hospital 
  • Homeless shelters in SW7 served via Bankuet
  • Homeless shelters in E1W, run by GOV Housing & Land

If you're interested in donating food to our charity partners, please feel free to email foodguru@citypantry.com.

Equally if you have any recommendations for charity partners who are looking for recurring donations, please don't hesitate to let our teams know!

Stay safe!

"We serve thousands of vulnerable Londoners, and since the outbreak of COVID-19 we have seen the need for our services skyrocket. We have taken on 3 new drivers and are working overtime to get surplus food to the most vulnerable. Please donate and help us continue our important work!"
