BASE & ROSES FOOD DISTRIBUTION COLLECTIVE

Our project will be heading in a slightly different direction in 2022, in the hope of continuing to address the crisis in inequality made so much worse by the Covid pandemic, but to do that in a less time-intensive way. Check back here in early New Year for more on that, and in the meantime, please contribute now so we can carry out our 'traditional' food bag deliveries on January 8th. And please get in touch if you're interested in helping out with admin, bag packing or driving: 07731 845211; baseandroses@riseup.net.

Here below is the earlier text, which still applies:

BASE & Roses is a food distribution collective formed to tackle issues around food security in Bristol. Bi-weekly, we are delivering free bags of groceries and meals to people in Bristol. 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 April 2020, 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 email us - baseandroses@riseup.net.
