Livery Kitchen Initiative to continue until end of July

Livery Kitchen Initiative (LKI) meal deliveries to deprived communities in East London, identified by City Harvest, continue at 2000 meals a week and will continue until the end of July when the LKI project will cease.

With the steady reduction in hospital mortality rates in the period leading up to Easter, a decision was made to reduce meal deliveries to the Royal London, Newham and Whipps Cross hospitals from Easter Monday. Deliveries to the hospitals stopped completely on Fri 23rd April.

There is likely to be a significant surplus in funds raised, as a result of finishing support to the NHS some weeks before it was thought it might be necessary. On advice from the consultant team at the Royal London, half is likely to be kept in reserve for any possible third surge this winter, and half will be given to City Harvest to help them develop their work in East London.
