Good Food icon-star-red Doing Good

We're proud to support local food rescue organizations and help those in need by donating our fresh, unsold food at the end of each day. Our partners arrive at our shops every night to collect and deliver this food to various food shelters and food banks.

What started out as just a handful of donated sandwiches from our very first shop in London has now grown to millions of meals donated across our cities around the world. This tremendous effort ensures as much of our unsold food as possible is given to people who really need it instead of ending up in the bin.

Together with our food rescue partners in the U.S., we are able to donate over 700,000 meals annually to feed the hungry in our local communities.

Together with you, we were able to raise money to help feed New Yorkers in need this fall. We donated $1 from every Harvest Salad sold to feed four people for a day. Thank you for purchasing this salad to help feed over 400,000 people in need this winter.

Partnership Spotlight: City Harvest

Our partnership with City Harvest began 18 years ago when we opened our first shop on Broad Street. Since day one, they’ve visited our shops in New York every night to collect and distribute our unsold food to local shelters and food banks across the five boroughs.

Together, we have rescued over 5 million meals to feed hungry New Yorkers.
