We’re Good Hemp and we’ve made a Londoner’s guide of all the best food delivery services, along with sustainable local grocers, vegan recipes from our community and ideas for growing your own vegetables, fruit and herbs. Think of it as a one stop shop, a lockdown larder if you please, with all the ingredients you need to start buying from sustainable local food brands in your area.
Building Better Food Habits
Globally, we’re all having to change the way we shop and as a result how we think about food. The early lockdown panic of searching for bananas has led us to meal subscription services or local green grocers that we might not have used otherwise. We’re thinking more about the ingredients that affect our mood and how we can minimise waste. It’s brought things like shopping locally and supporting small businesses into the public conversation. And that’s a positive. But we need to make sure that our new delivery habits are as sustainable as possible.
We’ve been having these conversations for a while here at Good Hemp. (One of our favourite articles from last Summer was all about buying things in season). We’re a small and sustainable business that’s been around since 1998 making honest food and drinks out of hemp seeds – that are as good for the planet as for the people on it. So when we were deciding how we could contribute, we thought we’d stick to what we know: sustainable food that makes you feel good.
Getting Your Food Delivered
To help make sustainable food more accessible, we’ve made all our products shoppable online, so you can get your hemp goodness delivered straight to your door. That’s hemp milk for the dairy-free, hemp seeds which are great for plant protein, and hemp oil to replace your everyday olive, along with our CBD oils and milks. No 25 minute queue outside your local supermarket or online Ocado purgatory.
Some of our favourite cooks have written some delicious vegan recipes too, to start bringing hemp into your daily routine. We’ve also pulled together our collection of small businesses, local initiatives, homegrown independents and sustainable food brands that can deliver to your door. It’s important that we have access to healthy and sustainable food – and that it doesn’t break the bank trying to get it. And those who need their dairy free milks, gluten free pasta, and meat free substitutes can get them too.
We see the hard work that big supermarkets are doing, but we also know that there are other companies who can satisfy all our essential food needs. We want to shout about those companies.
