Help us collect supplies for our care packs by gathering surplus food from our partners.

Every Thursday we assemble more than 100 care packages at our warehouse to support vulnerable people in isolation all across London. Each care pack has enough food and supplies to last someone for a week; the packs also include something to lift the spirit, like tea and biscuits, a handwritten note, and more.

You will be collecting surplus food from Tescos and greengrocers, all within a 10-minute drive from our Kentish Town warehouse. This shift is low time commitment relative to other opportunities and can be done within an hour.

Please note: You will need a car for this opportrunity.
