Founded over two years ago, Community Interest Company (CIC) Edible London aims to mitigate food poverty and waste. With the advent of Covid-19, the issue concerning food poverty has grown exponentially and has created heightened challenges. The time to take action is today. Read on for Edible London: Crowdfunding to Tackle Covid-19 Food Poverty.
Towards the end of March 2020, they opened a redistribution centre that is now assisting the most vulnerable by providing 70,000 meals every week. This achievement could not have been reached without generous food donations from the public and a team of dedicated volunteers who have unselfishly enabled the team to grow from just 6 people to 320 in a duration of 10 weeks.
With each day, new challenges surface that require more assistance to ensure that the organisation is in the best position to continue serving and help more people.
Restrictions increasingly are being lifted, but the social issues are still growing apace and show no sign of slowing. Edible London is therefore calling upon compassionate members of the public to donate of your time, expertise, resources and money to effect change by combating food inequality and food shortages.
