Support Edible London to keep our North London communities fed and tackle food waste

New stretch target

We would use the extra money to: 

-Develop and support more growing spaces across the capital

These sites would empower us to bring about more food, more education, more love and more sustainability. Not just for Edible London - but for everyone who is part of this journey. Let's make It edible. 

As we reach the last few days of our Crowdfunder your support is vital to help us continue to tackle food poverty in North London

Your support no matter how small will go a long way in keeping Edible London’s food distribution operation going, tackle food waste and food poverty in our community.


We have been working around the clock to relocate our food distribution hub from Alexandra Palace to Stamford Hill, space kindly donated by our fruit and vegetable suppliers Fresh and Fruity. We have this space for three months, it is vital that we raise enough funds to create the infrastructure we desperately need to keep our food distribution going. 



Countless thanks go to every single person who has got behind Edible London over the past 3 months. The support we have received from our community is truly phenomenal. If we were to have paid for the hours donated by our packing and distribution teams, admins, drivers, gardeners, we would be in a deficit of a few million pounds. What we have achieved on a shoestring is a testament to every single person who has been a part of Edible London. 

With less than 1 week to go on our Crowdfunder your support is vital to keep our operations running, without this support, we will need to dramatically scale back Edible London’s help to our community. We can not let this happen.

Please donate to our Crowdfunder today, be part of the magic and change we are creating in our community.


Our community needs us more than ever, here’s why:

- Use of food banks has increased by 180% this year*. Edible London donates large quantities of fresh fruit and vegetables to those food banks. Providing ingredients for over 40,000 meals a week;

- Even pre-COVID19, a staggering 34% of residents and 40% of children were living below the poverty line in Haringey*'

- 9.5 billion tons of food is wasted each year in the UK, which equates to the emission of 25 million tons of greenhouse gases**. Our food waste operation is currently saving up to 4 tons of food waste per day.

Helping us reach our £100,000 target will enable us to;

- Create a new Edible London redistribution centre

- Continue to provide daily food parcels and fresh ingredients to our 36 beneficiaries, creating up to 50,000 meals per week 

- Continue to reduce surplus food waste, by sorting and saving good produce for food parcels and community kitchens. Using the residual for compost at our many growing sites in Haringey

- Continue our outreach projects and educational days to help empower and educate our community in organic food growing

- Continue to build connections in our community to create more sustainable ways of using, consuming and sharing surplus food

 With your support to secure a home for Edible London we see no limits to what we can achieve, tackling food poverty and food waste in Haringey and beyond.
