Edible London is a North-London based community interest company, founded by Soner Karagozlu in 2018.
The organisation’s vision is to become a central driving ecosystem behind re-establishing a circular food economy that puts food on everyone’s plate and thus eradicates food poverty.
To achieve this, Edible London focuses its efforts on the sustainable cultivation and farming of produce (on 4 different sites currently), the circular management of resources, with special regards to the redistribution of surplus food goods, and all related community engagement and educational activities.
Edible London sources surplus fruit and veg in catering quantities from fresh wholesale markets and local supermarkets, and currently distributes enough surplus ingredients to provide up to 25,000 meals a week through its charitable network of organisations that directly feed the community: schools, hospitals, food banks, shelters, community groups, centres, kitchens and more. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, Edible London has provided more than 700,000 free meals to date.
