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! Food for Queers also provides our fellow queers with a Grocery Kit.

About the Grocery Kits & Meals
What's in a Grocery Kit?
Each grocery kit provides essential food staples such as pantry items, canned goods, fresh produce and personal care items, as long as we have the resources we aim to ensure kits provide enough food to help with meal preparation for a week.
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 2020.
UPDATE: The availability of prepared meals ended on December 18th, 2020 due to an unfortunate change in the community program which was providing our meals, however, Food for Queers will continue to provide Grocery Kits to folks who are in need of food solutions.
What if I have a food allergy or other dietary needs?
There are vegetarian friendly kits available, we can include items to accommodate food allergies.
We'll reach out directly if we need any further information about your specific allergy or dietary needs when assembling your kit. Please make sure to review each item yourself to ensure it is safe for you and or your family member to consume.
What’s Queer Events Role
QE connected with local London community initiatives with the intention of connecting members of the 2SLGBTQ+ 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 / kit deliveries.
