Friends of The Long Table

Can you help us change the world?

When we started The Long Table back in 2018, we had little idea how much of an impact our radical new model was going to have on the community. And it’s never been clearer: we need a food revolution worldwide, and we feel in our bones it has started. We now need to move it forward. Here’s why...

Did you know that a third of all food is wasted? Even though the industrialised food system is taking a tremendous toll on our planet, and the food that is being produced is making people unwell. To top that shocking fact, there is actually enough to go around, but people are still living in food poverty despite this.

Something’s gotta give, and things must change. We have a proposed solution.

The Friends of the Long Table are a community of people who are changing the world for the better. 

Each Friend donates £5 per week to the Long Table and this is used to fund our work. 

These weekly donations have allowed us to fund and fill the Freezers of Love (they provide food to people who need it), hire apprentices and grow our team. They also helped us to build a professional kitchen, create an awesome community food hall (for you to regularly visit), and further deepen our roots in communities.

And there’s so much more to come – all made possible by the commitment of our Friends!

Joining us as a Friend allows us to answer our driving question: “What if everyone had access to good food and people to eat it with?”, and the answer is what’s going to change the world. 

Together we will feed change – one bite at a time. 

You’re invited to take your seat at the table – metaphorically for now, but we can’t wait to welcome you to the table as soon as it’s safe to do so.

So once you’ve signed up, here's what you get in return:

  • Weekly takeaways that are collected from our Community Food Hall. You can redeem the value of your regular contribution at these takeaways! This will eventually turn into sit-down meals at our food hall, when it’s safe to do so.

  • You’ll receive a welcome pack, jammed-full with recipes, insights and our vision.

  • 15% off any non pay-as-you-feel items in our shop with your Friends membership card.

  • Early-bird access to events, bookings and workshops.

  • A regular Friends newsletter for behind the scenes news and updates.

  • Belonging to a community of people that are changing the world for the better.

So will you join us? We’ve saved you a seat.

Get a seat at The Long Table for £5 per week. That gets you £5 credit towards one of our pay-as-you-feel lunches or dinners! You can donate in multiples of £5 to support further seats at the table. We can either allocate the seats to your friends or family members, or leave them open and we'll make sure that money is used to feed people experiencing food poverty.
