Another drop off with Tracey and the wonderful folks at Sleep safe Selby for their guests.
Everyone at Food Aware CIC staff is thrilled to support all the hard work and support being provided here and let’s face it, who doesn’t love pizza, chips and a lovely choccy muffin with their cuppa?
Sleepsafe Selby is a new type of temporary accommodation in Selby North Yorkshire. Free and easy to access, they will accommodate individuals from any walk of life. They provide a safety net to reduce rough sleeping but also a stepping stone to encourage people into long term tenancies.
Sleepsafe Selby works with the people who stay with us and by working positively with local services such as Selby District Council, North Yorkshire Police, Horizons, Probation and other local charities to encourage a network of support.
If you think you can help support Sleepsafe Selby and the amazing work they are doing then you can contact them via their Facebook Group – Sleepsafe Selby and join the discussion and learn more about them.
It was fabulous to be supporting another new project – Harrison College helping to feed their students and get them ready for learning.
Harrison College students are being supported by ourself and Morrisons to support breakfast club and healthy eating. The college is trying to support the ‘whole person’ to make their students their best selves!
Harrison College is a post 16 business, enterprise and employability college, working with young people on the autistic spectrum.
Another Hugely Successful Month Supporting The Community
Our monthly monitoring return to @WRAP_UK (via Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra)) confirms that in August we intercepted 18 tonnes of surplus food & redistributed to 46 South Yorkshire projects each week supporting 3500+ people!
That 18 tonnes could have potentially ended up in a landfill yet thanks to our hardworking team it helped support vital work within our local community in South Yorkshire
Huge thanks to our hard-working team…we really can’t do it without you! And a huge thanks to our supporters & community partners
