by St Anne’s Food Hub
St Ann’s Food Hub is a group of local people in and around St Ann’s ward in Haringey who
have decided that everyone should be able to access fresh produce. We provide huge boxes
full of fresh fruit and vegetables for just £10.00 or free as ‘Solidarity’ boxes to local people
who really need a box, through referrals from local partner organisations.
There’s no difference between the ‘paid’ or ‘Solidarity’ boxes. The Food Hub is staffed
entirely by volunteers, keeping costs to a minimum. We give out between 65-120 boxes a
We help to reduce food waste because much of the fruit and vegetables that are in the
boxes are things that people wouldn’t normally buy – because it’s ‘too big /small’ or at its
‘Best before’ date. Like all food operations, sometimes we get things that are substandard.
We always find a home for them and there’s always a volunteer who can take away for
composting the stuff that isn’t good enough to eat. We’re keen to welcome new volunteers.
Just sign up on the website St Ann’s Food Hub or drop in to Chestnuts Community Centre
on a Friday or Saturday morning to find out more.
