Furloughed Foodies

Who are we:

We are Furloughed Foodies London .

We’re on a mission to help feed the NHS and those struggling the most during the COVID-19 pandemic, like the homeless and the elderly.

Why we exist:

We are a group of 600+ people that have recently been furloughed or let go from our employment due to the current global crisis. Instead of bingeing on Netflix over the next few months while we’re all stuck at home, we wanted to help our #NHSheroes and the community.

After speaking to some NHS workers about how we could help we realised doctors are receiving lots of cakes and unhealthy snacks, which is not great brain food for those on the front line. What they need and lack is healthy, hearty meals.​​​​​​

Canteens in most hospitals shut at 5 pm and staff working in the COVID-19 wards aren’t allowed in other areas of the hospital. This means staff really struggle for options when it comes to evening meals.

What do we do?

We currently cater to over 15 hospitals and 2 food banks and are trying to set up more connections with other hospitals as well as food banks. 

Check out our how it works page.

Want to help?

All of our donations go towards refunding the costs of the meals so that our volunteers are not out of pocket, so please be generous.

You can also sign up to volunteer  to cook or drive. Or, should you have any contacts for us at either food banks or hospitals please email [email redacted].uk
