Supporting and enabling creative and diverse projects that benefit our local communities
This project will be launched during October and be based at Queen’s Park Primary school ; it will bring together stakeholders from across the local area (church St)with charities like ourselves (Church Street Community Cha) providing ongoing offers of experiences through volunteering and educational experiences based on biodiversity, sustainability and care for our local environment. This project will run throughout the next academic year and continue to offer experiences through our stakeholders on an ongoing basis. It is a direct response to the food crisis brought about by the recent pandemic and we have already repurposed 70 Tons of wastage of food as a result. We have set up local planting in our community gardens (where we volunteer) and within our own school site; we propose to bring together stakeholders to continue to offer and repurposed (waste) food and land (100M2); educating people about the impact of food waste and general waste on the environment..
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Intended to bring benefits across-the-board to stakeholders and participants, in the first instance this project will directly benefit those who are facing difficulty in the present circumstances .It will provide a network of support offering coaching and mentoring as well as food poverty relief. The most vulnerable members of our community will receive direct support in the form of deliveries and donations. The Project, being a community based concern, means that it will also build cultural capital and strengthen bonds already brought about by the work already undertaken. By creating pathways for outside providers and corporate businesses to offer outreach and educate students and community members The Project will also be a useful tool for businesses hoping to engage directly with the local community as well as meeting CS requirements. Often corporate organisations provide us with amazing offers, they report that they find it very difficult to directly access.
Steps to get it done:
We are aware of the negative stigma wrongly attached to accessing what is sometimes considered "free food" through projects such as ours. We, believe in educating young people early in the environmental impact of our actions regarding food and land they see the benefit of reusing resources which otherwise go to waste It is vital that our young people understand the results created by the processing of waste and waste food By looking at repurposing food and land to prevent negative outcomes we are able to reduce the stigma /difficulty in accessing such resources in general. This is particularly important as we are aware that there is a great need for additional spaces and food ,as we have seen through direct requests and signposting that has come to us for such support through the recent crisis. We believe that by actively taking measures to reduce this as a community we can make a positive difference to the amount of waste/pollution occurring locally , encouraging sustainability.
