Help to donate a hot meal
We wanted to incorporate a social element into our business from the start and FoodCycle seemed like a natural fit. We wanted to make sure that every time we gave you a meal, we helped to give someone else one too. So that was the plan, for every pancake mix we sell via our websites, we make a donation of 20p to FoodCycle.
We are proud to work with the wonderful guys at FoodCycle. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the work they do, they reclaim surplus food that would have otherwise been wasted and cook it into tasty, healthy meals for people in need.
Because they don’t just give a meal, they give a solution – by using food waste and strengthening communities by bringing people together around a healthy meal, they are also helping with the issue of social isolation.
In the UK, millions of tonnes of food is wasted each year at all levels from plough to plate whilst over 5 million people are affected by food poverty. At least 400,000 tonnes of this is thrown away at retail level. FoodCycle are doing something about this by making use of perfectly edible food to create nutritious meals for those who need them. They also bring communities together and help fight social isolation through their community meals, food deliveries and collection service which allow people to check in and chat.
Help us to help more people with every pancake mix you buy from The Little Pancake Company and our sister company, Katie Bakes.
