Feeding Bristol emerged in 2017 in response to a statement made by the Mayor of Bristol that “no child should go to school hungry” and is committed to increasing food security for all Bristolians.
VWV volunteers have given up some of their time this summer to help the charity achieve its goal by:
"My time working with FareShare, the logistics charity who receive and deliver the donations for the project, enabled me to really see how much effort is involved with receiving, packing and delivering the contributions to the children who need them.
The community effort is impressive and includes a wide range of local businesses who were prepared to donate so much food - so much so that the van I was in could not take it all! - as well as time and money."
"Having first heard about Feeding Bristol through the Bristol Law Society, I realised that the extent of child hunger in Bristol was far greater than I'd imagined and wanted to do something to help tackle the problem. Feeding Bristol's work not only helps reduce child hunger, but also influences long term change to help improve food security for young people in Bristol."
