The hampers were going to be used in last weekend’s racing event but the Government’s changes to lockdown guidance on Friday meant the event took place behind closed doors. The food donation included fresh salads, sausage rolls and chocolate brownies.
City Harvest redistributed the hampers to charities to help vulnerable people including the elderly, children and domestic abuse groups.
Laura Winningham from City Harvest, said: “We are really grateful for this fantastic food donation. Our vans have redistributed this beautiful food to those most in need.
“Thank you to Levy UK and Goodwood for their quick response, ensuring food did not go to waste and helping support vulnerable communities during these challenging times.”
City Harvest delivers free food to 300 charities in London to help the one in four Londoners who can’t afford to eat.
Jon Davies, managing director of Levy UK, added: “We are delighted that City Harvest and the communities in which they work have benefitted from the delicious meals that were due to be served last weekend.”
