To our supporters

Thank you

From all at UKHarvest

Thanks to your support we raised an incredible £50,000 this Christmas! We are humbled by your generosity, which ensures we can continue our mission to fight food waste while Nourishing Our Nation.

Every single donation has been gratefully received, and we’d like to thank all the individual donors, businesses and trusts who have contributed over the past year.

Your donation has already helped us to distribute additional food over the Christmas period and host community meals, and your support will enable us do even more in 2022. You have helped stop good food from going to waste and support members of the community. We really can’t thank you enough.

This has been a heartwarming end to another succesful year where we have conitnued to Nourish Our Nation. We’d like to take this opportunity to share just a couple of highlights from 2021, please click here to download our summary report.

Key projects:

  

Nourish Hub

Opened in Autumn 2021 and located in London, the Nourish Hub is a space for the whole community to come together and eat, while also learning about cooking skills and healthy eating. Lunch is cooked and served daily on a 'donate as you dine' basis.

  

Pop-Up Pantries

We help local communities make the most of their weekly budget and help fight food waste by offering rescued food for just £2.50 at our Pop-Up Pantries! Opening our first in early 2021, we currently operate 5 pantries in and around the Chichester area and are soon to open two more.

   

Donnington Kitchen

This year we built our production and training kitchen hosting our education sessions and giving our volunteers and chefs a space to repack and cook delicious meals for our recipients. This has proven vital to the development of our organisation.

   

Education

Our education team “NourishEd”, delivered 150 education sessions this year! They teach nutrition, cookery skills and how to fight food waste in the home, taking place online, in our training kitchen and in the community.
