Simply.... to collect and deliver fresh food to feed the vulnerable people of our community in these unprecedented times of COVID-19. UKHarvest is a not for profit food rescue organisation, delivering surplus perishable food to charitable organisations around the UK. WE HAVE DELIVERED OVER 50% OF OUR NORMAL ANNUAL SUPPORT IN THE LAST 3 WEEKS. The demand on UKHarvest has grown immensely during the COVID-19 emergency. As we continue to try to deliver food to our charity partners we are receiving new requests for help, from vulnerable people. UKHarvest is currently working overtime to respond to the rapidly changing situation around COVID-19 and ensure that the most vulnerable have access to the food they need.
