As Autumn hits we continue to work hard supporting the community of South Yorkshire.

So proud of them helping to divert tonnes of edible food from potential waste & feeding thousands of people less fortunate each week + saving tonnes of CO2 from damaging the environment!

Huge thanks to our supporters New York Bakery Co. Bagels for another fab donation of surplus bagels to support our growing number of community projects.

A pallet of surplus bagels was donated to our partners Food Works Sheffield!

ITV Calendar Visit

Great to see Jonny Brown & Simon the cameraman from ITV Calendar at our Hellaby base filming re Cost-of-Living Crisis & anticipated significant increased demand across South Yorkshire

ITV Calendar filmed us to see the impact locally via our community partners in Mexborough Foodbank across Mexborough, Denaby & Conisbrough in Doncaster where average food parcels provided per week at end of summer is 35+ so what will demand be from October onwards when the energy cap increase hits and then again in Jan 2023??!!

 

Banana Box Toy Project

Food Aware CIC provide a tremendous amount of help to other organisations / charities, and we were delighted when they offered to provide a donation and some toys to enable us to help replenish toys for 7-11-year olds within our project.

We are humbled by the generous donations we receive from individuals and organisations.

Banana Box Toy Project are running short on playdoh for younger children and games / jigsaws for 7-11-year-olds.

 

 

Community Kitchen

Very busy Food AWARE community kitchen as times get progressively hard, we think we will see numbers rise at the kitchen.

A big thank you to Ilhaam Connected Networks for their take-away food that helps enormously.
