Our Mission

To address food insecurity among school-aged children while simultaneously reducing food waste in landfills. We want to help struggling families by offering them donated and rescued food, ensuring that both hunger and environmental concerns are addressed.

Proper nutrition plays a vital role in supporting the overall growth and development of children, enabling them to thrive academically and socially. By addressing food insecurity, we can create an environment where every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

How We Started

The Lunchbox London started in April 2023 as a grassroots organization determined to provide healthy lunch foods to food insecure families. We aim to educate families and others about food insecurity and what needs to be done to ensure that those who are struggling no longer have to choose between eating a meal or paying rent.

In November 2023 we became a registered Not-for-Profit. Becoming registered has opened new avenues for us to explore, such as sponsorships, grants and support from local businesses.

As of June 2024, we have provided over 800 food bundles to families, which is around 12,000lbs of food!
