An integral part of our UK strategy are the partnerships and networks that we build to help address some of the leading challenges society faces. Rabobank UK has a number of strategic partnerships with organisations across the country which align to our core mission and values.
City Harvest London
City Harvest was founded in 2014 with the aim of addressing these challenges by diverting quality, nutritious, edible surplus food from waste and redistributing it to those facing food poverty. City Harvest delivers free food for over 1 million meals a month to 350+ charities, including; children’s programs, food banks, refuges for women fleeing domestic violence and families fleeing war-torn countries, and local groups across London welcoming the elderly and isolated.
Rabobank UK formed a long-term partnership with City Harvest in 2022 and supports the work of City Harvest through a number of different initiatives. This includes employee volunteering opportunities at City Harvest’s West London distribution center.
Rabobank UK has also sponsored a co-branded delivery van distributing food across London and also works with City Harvest on knowledge sharing, research and events.
