London based food poverty alleviation charity – Feast With Us – launched their Aviva Community Fund to the public on the 5th May 2021 and hope to raise £2,500 by the 16th June 2021.
Feast With Us aims to provide long term food poverty relief in North West London by providing regular access to well balanced hot meals, nutrition education programmes and cooking skills, for those vulnerable to food scarcity. On average, Feast With Us provide 600 meals per week, with 100 delivered to North London residents by car, bike or foot.
In 2020 Feast With Us were able to:
- Provide 19,000 meals
- Prevent 11,234kg of surplus food from going to waste
- Work with 793 volunteers to provide an essential food poverty crisis response service in London in lieu of the Covid-19 pandemic
The Feast with Us Aviva Campaign provides a vital opportunity for businesses to partner with community organisations to reduce Camden’s carbon footprint. As part of the Camden Climate Pledge the CCCA encourages businesses to partner with local organisations and/or projects that aim to improve sustainability and encourage biodiversity.
