Wandsworth Community Food Bus
The London Food Bus brings nutritious, affordable food into the heart of deprived communities – tackling issues of both affordability and access. The double decker bus includes a social supermarket on the ground floor. Here, customers can purchase food for a fraction of the usual price. There is a focus on provision of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as culturally appropriate foods. Upstairs, there is a café offering low cost and nourishing meals and drinks. The bus also hosts a programme of food events such as cooking workshops and community meals and hosts local advice services.
As one member recently said: “The bus has dramatically increased the amount and variety of fruit and veg I eat daily. Removed some anxiety about being able to afford good quality nutritious food.”
The London Food Bus was officially launched by Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, in November 2022:
