Edible London has income from our local market stall sales of fruit and vegetables jams and homemade produce, from our procurement contracts, training courses, corporate events and cooking programs, as well as from donations and grants.
Edible London is a CIC (community interest company) and therefore does not have the tax advantages of a Charity so there are no tax breaks (credits) associated with your donation. Edible London keeps its cost base low to ensure your donations go a long way without these tax breaks.
Edible London uses your donations to pay for surplus food for redistribution, for the staff to manage our amazing volunteers and for premises and other running costs.
Yes, you can. If you have paid via PayPal, you can cancel via the payment via your account.
If you don’t have a PayPal account, please contact us with your pledge amount, and the reason you would like to be refunded. No fees apply.
Monthly donations helps Edible London plan its longer term finances, it spreads the contribution for the donor whilst allowing ongoing costs of the CIC to be met each month. This is the most important type of donation because no matter the size it empowers us to plan and grow sustainably.
