You've helped to feed the frontline!
Over this unprecedented time of national crisis, Bristol’s restaurant community have worked tirelessly to ensure as many people as possible get fed. We understand the power of food to sustain us when times get tough.
We wanted to make sure that vulnerable communities struggling to access good food, along with all frontline workers delivering long and difficult hours across the NHS, didn’t have to worry about cooking healthy, nutritious meals for themselves or their families.
Since we launched our campaign March 27th, we have:
- Raised more than £30,700 in donations and support from all of you. These donations were matched by Bristol artist Rob del Naja, who's artwork fire-sale raised more than £100,000 on our behalf!
- We have delivered more than 7,000 meals to frontline communities and NHS services so far
- Paid £28,000 to-date (£4 per meal) from the crowd-funder to Bristol’s independent restaurants and suppliers to help produce these meals.
- Delivered more than 700 weekly provisions boxes to foster-care leavers across the city, plus hosted online cook-alongs to help them use the ingredients
- Donated chefs and kitchens staff to the Caring in Bristol ‘Cheers Drive’ initiative, which has produced 35,000 meals for Bristol’s homeless citizens to-date
We have now achieved our crowd-funding target and will continue to feed vulnerable communities in Bristol until the end of June
