At Be Enriched, we believe that affordable, nutritious food should be accessible to everyone, so we're bringing the shop to those who need it.
The London Food Bus is the first converted double-decker bus of its kind in London. Each week it aims to offer groceries, cupboard items and more, at an affordable price. It even has a cafe on the top section, allowing people to buy a coffee and catch up with friends.
Not only that, the bus even complies with the Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ) guidance and uses solar panels to create energy.
We think the choice is simple:
Choose the Food Bus to do your shopping, and help support your own community.
The project has been funded by the Mayor of London and the London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP) through the Good Growth Fund, DWS, Esmee Fairbairn Foundation, Sarah Dent, Wandsworth Council, L&Q and Mercers’ Charitable Foundation.
Food Bus Highly Commended, 27 April 2022
We were over the moon to see our work with The Food Bus highlighted at the national Social Value awards. Our specially converted double-decker was highly commended in the Social Innovation category.
Be Enriched Founder and CEO Kemi Akinola said: “We are delighted that The Food Bus was recognised in this way. It has been a labour of love to get to this point. I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported this important work, especially the team on board the bus. They work hard each and every week to bring low cost, healthy food and essentials to those who need them in Lambeth and Wandsworth.
"This commendation demonstrates the positive impact we are having, especially at a challenging time, and we look forward to taking this further in the future. Everyone is welcome on board The Food Bus. When you shop with us, you can feel confident that you are also supporting the local community. If there is anyone who would like to get further involved in this work, including sponsoring the bus, please do get in touch.”
