FoodAWARE CIC supprting FoodAWARE CIC Community KitchenThe Food AWARE community kitchen is getting busier week by week which shows there is an essential need for this service without this the service users would not get a hot meal.

We look forward to welcoming two new volunteers on board next week as we continue to expand the kitchen.

Thank you to the volunteers for all their help that keeps this running.

 

Sunnyside Supplies

 

FoodAWARE CIC supprting Sunnyside SuppliesHuge pleasure to welcome Emma, Jasmine & Ian from Sunnyside Supplies to our Hellaby base on Tuesday this week.

We are extremely pleased to be able to offer them essential FREE SUPPLIES to support their local Foodbank provision in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

We sent them on their way a large trolley full of food etc and also agreed to provide a further £500 worth of essential supplies as they move towards a ‘social supermarket’ model in the near future.

Sunnyside Supplies is a network that has been set up by Wickersley Ward Councillors with help from Maltby, Dalton, and Bramley Parish Councils, St Mary Magdalene Church, and volunteers to help provide food support.

 

Banana Box Toy Project

 

Banana Box Toy Project visiting FoodAWARE CIC HellabyIt was our pleasure to welcome Banana Box Toy Project to visit us at Food Aware CIC this week.

They aim to alleviate poverty through the provision of educational and play toys that help children learn and develop social skills, although they were staggered to learn that we had food ready to go out to feed 4500 families throughout South Yorkshire.

Food AWARE support so many organisations to help feed families.

We are proud to be supporting Banana Box Toy Project at Spirit of Christmas where they are helping to feed a child’s mind.

Windows were open and social distancing followed throughout the visit!
