Green W3 – City Harvest dealing with Food Waste in Acton

City Harvest is an Acton based charity that believes that sharing food and nourishing others is one of the simplest, most powerful ways of showing we care. The re-distribute food that would otherwise be wasted, we make businesses more sustainable and more impactful. In you are a business and concerned about Food Waste in Acton, get in touch with City Harvest and they can advise you if they can use that waste. They take food to grassroots organisations that feed some of our most vulnerable and deserving fellow Londoners: The oldest. The youngest. The newest arrivals and the people with the deepest roots in the city.
