MAKING GOOD FOOD GO FURTHER
Our community gives to us every day; we are determined to give back to it as much as we can.
We try to keep surplus food to a minimum, wasting as little as possible. We carefully set aside any leftover food from our bakeries and donate it to over 40 charities across London, Oxford and Brighton. We are always looking for more, so if there is a cause you are passionate about, please get in touch.
Three of the many charities we partner with are Glass Door, The Felix Project and The Vineyard Community Centre.
Glass Door, London’s largest emergency night shelter, provides a safe, warm place to sleep and a hot meal throughout winter. It also offers a variety of services to help people build stable futures.
The Felix Project unites charities and food suppliers in the interest of reducing food waste while alleviating food poverty in the elderly, the homeless, refugees and asylum seekers, families and children, and those suffering mental health issues.
We also donate surplus food to The Vineyard Community Centre for the morning drop-in, a gathering place for those in crisis whether by homelessness, addiction, mental illness or social difficulty.
If you are interested in volunteering to carry surplus food to charities, or in receiving surplus donations, please contact your local bakery.
PUTTING BREAD TO WORK
We partner with Breadwinners to help provide training and employment for refugees, while also getting quality bread to more people through London farmers’ markets.
Since 2015 we’ve collaborated with Carmel McConnell and her team at Magic Breakfast to provide balanced morning meals to school children so they don’t begin their days too hungry to learn.
We donate day-old products to Day Old who create snack boxes to sell in offices, putting a serious dent in food waste while raising funds to fight hunger for inner-city children.
We try to recycle as much as possible. We’re pleased to use the services of First Mile, a rubbish collection company that separates and recycles waste. They manage to recycle 66% of all the rubbish they collect, twice the London average. Their goal is to recycle everything. We like their philosophy.
