We’re delighted to announce that our Charity of the Year 2021 is FoodCycle, a charity fighting food poverty, social isolation and food waste.
Every year, Lubbock Fine staff choose a worthy cause to support. Our past partners include The Passage, Brain Tumour Research and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
Throughout 2021, the team’s fundraising and volunteering efforts will support FoodCycle’s projects, which help vulnerable people, those from low-income families and people affected by homelessness, by serving nutritious community meals using surplus food.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, FoodCycle has continued to strive towards their core aims, delivering food parcels and introducing a Cook and Collect takeaway service for local communities. To help combat social isolation they also launched a Check-in and Chat service, where volunteers call participants for a weekly catch-up.
Molly Norris from our CSR Committee said: “We’re proud to continue our annual Charity of the Year initiative, which is led by the Lubbock Fine team. We’re looking forward to working with FoodCycle in the coming year ahead, supporting their mission to target food poverty and loneliness.”
Victoria Meier, Head of Fundraising at FoodCycle, said: “We’re delighted that the staff at Lubbock Fine have nominated FoodCycle as their Charity of the Year. At FoodCycle, we support some of the most vulnerable people in society and the COVID-19 pandemic has hit our community particularly hard.
“Lubbock Fine’s fundraising and volunteering support will prove invaluable as we continue to provide much-needed healthy, hot meals and resume our free community meals for those at risk of food poverty and loneliness once it is safe to do so."
