Mayor of London launches Food Bus
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan visited Wandsworth and Lambeth on Friday to unveil a new, first of a kind Food Bus.
"From our work across Wandsworth and Lambeth we recognised that it can often be difficult to get to, or afford, healthy food. Equally, retail space is expensive for groups to take on. When I looked at the problem, I thought back to my life experiences buying food from a man in a van and I was inspired to see how I could use that to address the challenges facing many families."
“Every Londoner should have the right to healthy, affordable food, no matter what their circumstances or where they live. The Food Bus is a brilliant initiative, providing vital support to families in need, including access to nutritious, affordable food. I’m proud that my Good Growth Fund is supporting this scheme, which is helping to tackle food inequality in the capital.”
