While events continue to move at pace, we want to do everything we can to support small independent food and drink businesses here in the south east of England.
As such, we’re compiling a one-stop shop of Local Food Britain members who offer online orders or takeaway options.
Please be aware, exact details will be constantly changing and we will be adding more entries as we receive them.
Please also make sure to look after yourselves and each other throughout this uncertain time, while supporting your local food and drink industry as much as it’s possible for you to do so.
Thank you so much for your support.
