Story

BASE & ROSES FOOD DISTRIBUTION COLLECTIVE

BASE and Roses is a food distribution collective formed to tackle issues around food security in Bristol. We are delivering weekly, free food parcels to people in Bristol and distributing cooked meals to homeless people.

The Covid-19 pandemic is causing extreme suffering and disruption to people in Bristol, disproportionately impacting people in precarious situations.

Our initiative is based on principles of solidarity and mutual aid. We are not a charitable organisation. Anybody can self refer and request a food parcel if they need one; our distribution is not means tested.

We have been up and running since the 4th April and by our 2nd week delivered over 60 food parcels around Bristol. The demand for food is high and requests continue to come in.

Our food distribution is run by volunteers with a small budget and is predominantly reliant on donations from food suppliers. We are aiming to get as many food donations as possible for the distribution, however to ensure our food parcels contain a substantial amount of food and a balanced selection, we are buying in extra food.

We urgently need funds to pay fuel costs for drivers and to buy additional food for the parcels.

Please contribute what you can and share this fundraiser widely. If you prefer to arrange a bank transfer directly with us, email baseandroses@riseup.net.

Alternatively if you are an organisation/group that can donate food to our collective please also get in touch.

To access our food parcels please contact us on 07731845211 or emaill us - baseandroses@riseup.net.
