Early on when lockdown was about to begin in the UK, a friend asked how to support UK vegan food businesses. She asked whether I knew which were delivering or doing no-contact collections. I knew of some and quickly realised there were many!
There are many businesses delivering food either by apps such as Uber or Deliveroo. Some favourite cafés have pivoted to become grocery delivery shops. And some have expanded their menu to suit cooking their goods at home. So many choices. Currently, there are 214 and the vast majority are still operating.
As another friend said, support these businesses if you can so we have a vegan food scene to return to when this crisis is over.
In addition, if you’re a UK vegan business, Bright Zine has assembled a Support Vegan Business Hub with loads of helpful information.
If you’re a UK vegan food business and want to be included in my list, please contact me.
Be well. Now more than ever, love hard. And solidarity forever.
