We are a community interest company based in Bognor Regis which has received its seed fund from Santander. FED. receives rescued food from FareShare Sussex, StonePIllow, local food producers and local residents which are turned into nutritious and delicious meals which are frozen and distributed to individuals & families in crisis. We would like to ensure our longevity. By contributing to this project, you are 'paying forward' for the making of these meals so they are banked for those who are in need of them. The cooking is done by a team of 3 volunteers at a commercial kitchen kindly provided by local homelessness charity, StonePillow. FED. is also currently involved in a project which supplied slow cookers to 30 low income local families with children of school age. For 8 weeks, these families are provided with all the ingredients required to make one delicious main meal a week and they are provided recipes and support during this project.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our project addresses the impact of secondary food waste - we take fresh food which more often than not end up in landfill due to the lack of confidence sections of the community has with dealing and cooking from scratch. This project also encourages creativity and curiosity with food and meal planning and also encourages community engagement and resilience.
