Since the launch of QE's local community initiative in May, Food for Queers has been supplying prepared meals and occasion grocery kits to folks in our local Queer community who are currently experiencing food insecurity.
Prepared Meal Delivery
UPDATE: Food for Queers has reached max capacity for our prepared meals portion of the program, at this time we cannot accept any new meal request but that doesn't mean we can't help, in addition to meals, Food for Queers can provide our fellow queers with a Grocery Kit.
Food for Queers Grocery Kit
Each Grocery Kit provides essential and helpful items to assist in creating meal solutions for your household, food staples can include pantry items, canned goods, fresh produce, personal care items etc.

About the Meals
Where are the meals coming from?
Queer Events has secured fully prepared meals from a number of London based community initiative. The majority of our meals will be provide by a community partnership between the London Food Bank and the RBC Convention Centre. Meals are prepared and packaged by culinary staff at the convention center, these meals include a fresh sandwich or wrap, a piece of fruit, small snack or two and a drink.
Queer Events will collect meals on designated days and with the help of community volunteers, meals will be delivered to door steps or lobbies in locations within the City of London. The first round of Food for Queers deliveries started in early May.
What if I have a food allergy or other dietary needs?
There are vegetarian meals available, we can also request meals to accommodate food allergies.
When a meal is requested with a food allergy noted, one of the Food for Queers volunteers will reach out to our meal providers in order to ensure a safe meal can be prepared for you, if we need any further information or the chefs are unable to provide a meal to accommodate, we'll reach out to you directly.
What’s Queer Events Role
QE connected with local London community initiatives with the intention of connecting members of the LGBT2Q+ Community with regular food or meal solutions.
We are here to assist with logistics of the program which relies on existing Queer Events volunteers to help complete meal deliveries.
Volunteers & Kindness
Food for Queers operates because of the generosity and support of volunteers who are committed to ensuring people have access to food and that no one in our LGBT2Q+ community goes hungry during this crisis. Meals are donated to this program, we may not know what’s on the menu each day but we do know it will be fresh, free and delivered to your door.
UPDATE: We want to thank everyone who has reached out to support this program! We currently have enough volunteers to ensure all deliveries can be completed.
