North London club Crystal Palace chefs will be cooking and taking healthy meals for frontline NHS staff, families and vulnerable people in south London, in a unique partnership with food surplus redistribution charity, City Harvest London, and the Palace for Life Foundation.



Beginning last week, club chefs are preparing and packaging up to 900 nutritious and nourishing meals a week in the kitchens at Selhurst Park, following the most stringent hygiene and social distancing measures, which are then collected each day and distributed by City Harvest vans.


According to crystal palace management, the food will be distributed to the most important people and who are vulnerable to the naval virus.


The food packages are being delivered to four key groups:

  •  Frontline workers. NHS doctors, nurses and other staff are working relentlessly to save lives in this pandemic to eat whilst on breaks or when home after long shifts.
  •  Elderly and vulnerable people forced to stay at home. Meals will be delivered to new and existing emergency aid organisations in the area to distribute accordingly.
  •  Families facing food poverty. Meals are distributed to various local charities who will put food on the tables of hard-pressed families who need it most.
  •  Homeless people. Many rough sleepers have been put in hotels and hostels around London, with no cooking or food storage facilities. City Harvest will distribute the club’s meals to partners running temporary hostels to ensure guests have regular meals.
