There are 900 charities in London that City Harvest could be supplying with healthy food. A large blast freezer would help us save more food and reach more of London's hungry. Blast freezers enable us to freeze food quickly and without sacrificing nutritional value. A new blast freezer would open our capacity to freeze all types of food, including ready-meals, meat and fish, and give it an extended life. We are the only charity that takes food on its Use-By date and redistributes it on the same day, however there is always a quantity that we cannot redistribute on the day. A blast freezer would allow us to extend the life of these items for immediate distribution the following day. Please help us fund our new blast freezer to ensure higher and faster freezer capacity, enabling us to save and redistribute more food and feed more of London's hungry.

What we'll deliver:

  • Installation of freezer

Why it's a great idea:

A blast freezer will help us divert even more food from landfill as well as help us to feed more of the thousands of Londoners suffering from hunger and food insecurity.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying the Blast Freezer
