As rainy days turned into colder days, the sun has been out less and less and the need for our project has increased.
Latest research says there are over 14 million people living in food insecurity with the majority of them being children and the elderly. Our experience and research shows that in reality many of them are missing days without food, as living in a food desert, unable to travel to purchase food and having no funds to by food.
A lot of this is caused by age and delays in benefits compounded by a lack of food knowledge, fuel and in some cases cookers. So we are pleased to be able to offer at least a small portion of them a meal and show them with the skills to provide for themselves. We’ve been using the Vegware pots over the last few months for soups which people can freeze and defrost at their leisure, ensuring they have a healthy emergency meal.
