Our firm charity: City Harvest

Posted Tuesday 31st January 2023

This year Joelson is proud to be supporting City Harvest as our firm charity. In doing so, we are helping to tackle some of London’s biggest problems: Waste. Inequality. Isolation.

By helping to re-distribute food that would otherwise be wasted, City Harvest makes businesses more sustainable and more impactful. City Harvest rescues nutritious surplus food from manufacturers, suppliers, producers and retailers, and delivers, for free, to 375+ London charities feeding those facing food poverty. City Harvest rescues food, people, and the planet by preventing food waste, providing life-changing support to communities in every London borough through food, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from waste.

City Harvest tripled in size in 2020 to meet the demand of people facing food poverty. Now distributing free food for more than 1.2 million meals a month the need continues to rise as the cost of living tightens its grip.

Phil Hails-Smith, Managing Partner at Joelson said:

“As a firm we are so excited to be supporting City Harvest this year, we can’t wait to get involved and have our people spend time with the charity on a regular basis. City Harvest is a brilliant match for Joelson due to our shared sustainability and ESG goals, combined with the current economic climate and cost of living crisis – we hope we can make a real difference.”
