On November 18th 2023 our co-founder, Mex Ibrahim attended an event by City Harvest which showed how surplus food was given another life. Together with their friends at London’s Community Kitchen they co-hosted a Covent Garden Supper Club at The Conduit. The supper acted as a great introduction to see how London’s first surplus food distribution charity are making positive changes in their efforts to reduce London’s food waste.
Laura Winningham, CEO of City Harvest London, is a co-founder of London’s first large scale, last-mile, food redistribution effort to connect surplus food with those facing hunger. Our Co-Founder Mecca Ibrahim caught up with Laura to find out more about their work, her inspirations and what has been happening with food rescue during lockdown.
