Pear Drops emergency food delivery was set-up as a non-profit organisation by The Pear Tree Pub in Fulham and A Love For Brands marketing consulting to help those affected by the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
Each day we create freshly prepared nutritious meals for the elderly, vulnerable and homeless from our kitchen at Holy Trinity Brompton Church.
Volunteers deliver the meals to individuals’ homes or local organisations, following hygiene standards and social-distancing rules, 7 days/week.
In addition to our at-home meal delivery service, we also provide meals to the homeless in Central London every evening, where we have set-up a number of stations across the capital, to the homeless in temporary accommodation and to Ealing Soup Kitchen on weekends.
We are relying on volunteers and appealing for your support to help where you can.
Together, we can ensure no one goes hungry!
Freshly prepared meals from our kitchen – every day
The chefs in our kitchen prepare all meals from scratch every day. Fresh ingredients are sourced from the local Smithfield meat market and Western International Market and prepared into nutritionally balanced, flavourful meals.
There is a choice of a meat or vegetarian meal per day, plus fish Fridays and roast dinner on Sunday. We provide a complimentary dessert every day.
All meals are fully labelled with the ingredients and allergens and will require reheating.
