About Lee Greens Organic Food Veg

About us

Lee Greens is a not for profit veg bag scheme run by enthusiastic, vegetable-loving people living in Lewisham, Lee, Blackheath and the surrounding area. We provide local people with seasonal, organic vegetables from small local farms - we believe in eating great fresh food that supports local trade and minimises food miles.
 
We are really excited to have the chance to provide delicious, organic, affordable produce to people in our community and to build strong relationships with local famers so that we can support one another in the long term.  
 
We are pleased to support the hard work of two important local charities by donating our surplus veg and uncollected veg bags:

  • Action For Refugees In Lewisham (AFRIL) supports refugees and asylum seekers who are in poverty. They run a weekly food bank and also give food directly to families in need.Lewisham Food Cycle
  • FoodCycle Lewisham is a charity working to fight both food-waste and food poverty in Lewisham. They collect food that would have otherwise been thrown away by supermarkets and cook it into delicious and tasty 3 course meals for anyone who joins them on a Saturday lunchtime, but are primarily aimed vulnerable people, those at risk of social isolation or those who struggle to eat proper meals on a daily basis. Our veg donations help FoodCycle run supper club events to raise money to help them run. 

We are very grateful to Growing Communities for their support in getting us this far and we look forward to working with them in the future.

Support us!

We are looking for people to help pack our veg bags, and to help deliver the bags to the pick-up points. If you are interested in joining our friendly team, see more details on our "Join Our Team" page.

Our Farmers

We have developed relationships with local farmers to source fresh, organic and seasonal vegetables. By having these close connections they share with us the best of their crop, and in return we support them with reliable business at a fair price for them. Find out more information on our "Farmers" page.
