Ms. Burley, 60, was seen helping London Community Kitchen, where she has reportedly been volunteering for seven or eight weeks.
In a video shared on the charity’s Facebook page, the journalist wears a high visibility jacket and pink face mask as she talks about what they do on a daily basis.
“We have ready meals, vegetarians of course, water,” she says.
“We have a lot of volunteers packing them up, we already have tons of them.”
She can also be seen in the clip handing out food parcels which are then distributed to families in Brent, north west London who plunged into food poverty during the pandemic and third national lockdown.
A spokesman for London Community Kitchen told the Daily Mail, “Kay is a very, very strong, grounded person – she’s really excited about what she’s doing.
“She comes two or three times a week and spends most of a day here.”
Food insecurity in the UK is among the highest in Europe, according to a 2019 report by the Environmental Review Committee.
In 2020, the Trussell Trust’s Foodbank Network provided 1.2 million emergency food packages to people in crisis between April and September as food poverty persists across the UK.
She has been suspended for six months, while Northern England political editor Beth Rigby and correspondent Inzamam Rashid have been suspended for three months.
