Esther Community Enterprise (ECE) is a highly worthwhile non-profit organisation, run on an entirely voluntary basis, serving the homeless and other socially excluded people in London and the UK.

“Giving Purpose to Surplus”   is our mission statement. We aim to meet those who have needs in the local community by redistribution of food and other consumables donated by retailers.

ECE makes a worthwhile collective response to the 3 tenets of sustainable development, namely social, economical and environmental needs.

June, a qualified Therapist and Welfare Officer, co-ordinates and manages Esther Community Enterprise. She is certified in the area of Health and Hygiene.
