Scroll down the list to discover the many and varied organisations working with us. Clicking on the organisation name will take you to their web or social media page.
KingsGate Church is a key partner for VoH; they have supported us throughout our growth as a charity and at the start of lockdown the church building turned into a food storage and production centre almost overnight! It is the physical HQ for most of our project work, and we are deeply grateful to the Elders and Trustees of KingsGate Church for their generosity, without which relatively little would have been accomplished.
KingsGate is a brilliant local church and we're glad to acknowledge it.
KVA works towards a Kingston where communities are active, strong and connected.
KVA supports local voluntary and community sector groups to develop their skills, build their resources and amplify their voice. We are incredibly grateful for all their continued advice and support; and especially for their invaluable help in becoming a registered charity.
KCAH supports people facing housing crisis in the Kingston Borough enabling them to rebuild their lives.
Offering much more than just advice, shelter and food, KCAH provides lasting solutions that restore the self-esteem and confidence of vulnerable people, helping them out of the vicious circle of homelessness.

Since the start of the outbreak VoH has developed an excellent working relationship with RBKuT, facilitating the establishment of the Kingston Food Hub and the distribution of meals to where it is most needed. But there are so many ways in which RBKuT has provided support, and continues to do so. We are hugely grateful!
John Lewis & Partners has generously supported VoH since the project began, not only financially but also through providing donations of foods, admin supplies and multiple, very needed, white goods to facilitate food storage and clothes washing.

Waitrose has generously supported VoH by providing ingredients that might otherwise go to waste so that we can prepare healthy cooked meals for isolated and vulnerable people throughout Kingston borough.
City Harvest puts surplus food to good use in a sustainable way, getting surplus food safely to the hungry. While thousands of Londoners go hungry each day, safe, healthy and usable food is being disposed of.
City Harvest collects this nutritious surplus food from all segments of the food industry including restaurants, grocers, manufacturers, wholesalers, hotels and caterers, and they have donated to VoH in a big way.
We have a great working relationship sharing surplus and donated food within the Borough. This helps us keep our costs down and reach many more people.

The dairy is one of the few flourishing Welsh independent dairies remaining in London and continues to run from the original premises in Aspenlea Road, Fulham, and, from January 2014, a second depot opened in Surbiton, Surrey, from where they generously provide dairy products to the Kingston Food Hub.

Nando's restaurant in Kingston has generously donated chicken for us to use in our recipes at the Kingston Food Hub and to give to our families in the Brite Box project. We are so grateful!

The Real Butchers is a family run business, based in New Malden, Surrey, with a proud 30 year history. Started by husband and wife duo Roland and Anne Head back in 1983, their son, Laurence, is now part of the business too. The company sources its products from original herds bred only for meat, and that have no history of BSE. The products are therefore all of the highest quality, making them appropriate for a wide range of customer requirements.

The Gazebo is a Samuel Smith's-owned bar overlooking the river Thames in Kingston. They proudly serving products that only use 100% natural ingredients!

Established in 2008, Mustard Foods business model was based on delivering to 32 restaurant groups around the UK, but this all stopped on 23rd March 2020 when the lockdown began.
