That's why people are at the heart of what we do, both in and out of the office.
Each day we work hard to make City Pantry more sustainable and eco-friendly for all.
Back in March 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic struck the UK, we launched our #FeedYourCommunity initiative to help support key workers and vulnerable people. Since then we’ve worked with dozens of our vendor partners to deliver over 100,000 meals to hospitals, fire stations, food banks, schools, shelters, and more.
During the festive season, we partnered with three charities and causes to help provide support and nourishment to people in need after such a challenging year. We were thrilled to work alongside Crisis, Muswell Hill Soup Kitchen, and Feed London to support their initiatives during December.
Every year, the UK wastes millions of tonnes of food waste, and yet many still struggle to afford to eat. That’s why we’ve taken a stand against food waste by partnering with food redistribution charity City Harvest. Since 2019 we’ve been working together closely to help redirect food that would have otherwise been wasted to people who need it most.
Since the beginning of City Pantry, we’ve been proud to partner with many food businesses that share the same values as we do. Whether it’s plant-based meals from Atis, which uses Karma to prevent food waste, or brownies from Luminary Bakery, which helps support and empower disadvantaged women, our vendor partners work hard to give customers delicious food time and time again, while helping out in the community.
Delivering delicious food to teams can take its toll on the environment, so in November 2020 we partnered with e-cargo bike delivery company Pedal Me to make our services greener. And when we can’t use Pedal Me - or our other eco-friendly partner Urb-it - we offset delivery emissions through ClimateCare!
Back in September 2020, we introduced new delivery boxes to streamline our logistics and further reduce carbon emissions. This decision has helped us to save up to half a ton of CO2e every week.
Getting meals from A to B efficiently and sustainably isn’t the only thing we’re doing to be more green. Providing our vendor partners with eco-friendly packaging is top of our list too! That’s why we partnered with Greenman Packaging back in 2018 to give our vendors exclusive offers on planet-friendly packaging, as well as free eco-audits provided by Oceanic Global.
