Can you donate locally grown fruit and vegetables to Foodival?

Last year, we dished out over 600 servings of deliciously tasty vegetarian food, cooked by local restaurants to some very happy festival goers.

But we couldn't have done that without the amazing generosity of all the people who donated fruit, herbs and vegetables, that they'd grown in their allotments, community gardens, backyards, gardens, roofs and window sills!

Just some of the donations from last year

Do you grow any fruit and vegetables?  Do you know someone who does grow?  Do you know an allotment or growing space near you that might?

Whether you have a handful of salad leaves, a giant marrow, a punnet of plums or a piece of rosemary - it all counts.

Please help us promote Foodival to all your friends who grow fruit and vegetables.
  • Send them a link to this blog
  • Tweet them to see if they can donate #growingforfoodival
  • Share a Facebook post to see if they want to enter the vegetable competition
  • Download a flyer and pop it up on a noticeboard or give it out to your grower friends
  • Or if you know a garden near you, let us know!

If you're growing or know a growing space, add them to the Foodival map

Let's see if we can get more than the 60 growers who donated last year. !

Saturday is Donations Day

  • Drop off your locally grown produce anytime from 12pm - 4pm at Mushkil Aassaan, 222 Upper Tooting Road
