Waste2Taste needs your support!!

September 2020

 

Just a little update from us at WASTE2TASTE.

 

As you know, for the past 6 months we have been committed to #OX4FREEFOODCREW cooking up free meals from our lovely kitchen for those worst affected in Oxford by COVID-19.

During this time, we have provided more than 3000 cooked meals with the support of Ark-T ,Oxfordfoodbank, SOFEA, Bucksum and HappyCakesuk in partnership with Flosoxford and Oxforhub. Prioritising people over 70’s and with underlying conditions, isolated, single parents, homeless and vulnerably housed adults.

As numbers have increased we will continue to supply these meals for the months ahead. Aiming to supply 200 free meals a week.

Our much-loved community café @Ark-t Centre has now opened its doors , and we are so happy to be back.

These have been unprecedented times, especially for small businesses like us who have lost 100% of our income from external catering and café. More thann ever we need your help to recover.

Please do get in touch with us if you need any external catering service or are able to support our work somehow, with surplus veg from your allotment, cleaning products, takeaway boxes or with a small donation towards the cost of a home cooked meal.

We are Community focused, so we will keep doing just that!

This is the time for us to get together with kindness and respect to help others to the best of our abilities.

We are all in this together!

Please be safe.

 

MUCH LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP FROM US
