Where to Get Free Food in London this September

There’s no such thing as a free lunch, they say,  but there is if you know where to look…

1 Free chips
On Friday 21 September, the newly launched CHIPNATION in Soho is offering free chips between 12 noon and 2pm. CHIPNATION offers up 7,000 different flavour combinations – all fully vegetarian with plenty of vegan choices. Start with your chip – potato chips, sweet potato chips or halloumi chips – before moving on to your seasonings (choose from 10, including Cajun Spice and the zesty Peri Peri), then one of 40 sauces, including Sticky Korean BBQ, Smokey Baconaise or Deadly Hot Chilli, and, finally, one of six toppings, including cheese, vegan cheese, vegan bacon bits, jalapeños and fried onion. The free chips offer is valid for one small cone of potato chips per person at ChipNation Soho on 21 September only (between 12-2pm, take away only, one sauce only, subject to availability).
40 Great Windmill Street, Soho W1D 7LY;

2 Free dumplings
It’s National Dumpling Day on Wednesday 26 September, and Chinatown London – purveyors of some of London’s best dumplings – is celebrating with a mammoth dumpling giveaway. Seven restaurants will be giving away a total of 1,800 hot, tasty parcels on National Dumpling Day, from midday until they run out.

3 Free ice cream
Ice cream brand Breyers Delights is offering thousands of lucky Londoners an exclusive first taste of its three new ice cream flavours – for free! The lower-calorie, high-protein brand will park up its spectacular unicorn-themed ice cream float, adorned with glitter and rainbows, at Old Spitalfields Market from Friday 28 September until Sunday 30 September (11am-5pm). Choose from flavours like Cookies and Cream, Salted Caramel Cake, and three new winter flavours – Chocolate Orange, Coffee Cupcake and Cinnamon Oat Cluster – and personalise it with rainbow meringue kisses or rainbow sprinkles. Breyers Delights contains between 290-370 calories per tub – up to 57% less than similar ice cream products. The three new flavours will be available to buy from supermarkets nationwide from October 2018, priced £4.99 for 500ml.
