Goodgymers from Camden, Ealing, Hammersmith and Slough converged on City Harvest for the monthly mission to help organise all the food that comes in. This is a distribution point for a variety of charities and food banks. This week there was a specific assortment being created for a charity supporting asylum seekers.

It's a great opportunity for an upper body workout of tray lifting combined with squats as the team sorted out the food by date and type into crates. It's also a chance to find out more about food (it turns out soy nuts are delicious and peas have milk!).

After a solid 2 hour workout food had been sorted and freezers stocked up ready for the next round of deliveries.
