Enriching more communities

By Andy | Communications Officer

In November, our latest mobile greengrocers hit the road!

Our specially converted Food Float is now in service, helping us to serve more locations with low-cost fruit, vegetables and cupboard staples. The float is wholly electric, and already proving a firm favourite with the communities we support.

During the last few months, we also held a great set of Kids Clubs on board the Food Bus. During the school holiday sessions, we offered fun activities plus a nutitious meal to the families that joined us. The events were well attended, and the feedback was fantastic!

“I thought the idea of the Food Bus was exceptional but when I discovered that they also do children activities during school half terms I could not believe it. As a mum of 3 I am always trying to find nice activities to do with my children during the school holidays so it is the perfect place for us. And not only do they provide cool activities like crafts but also, they always give us something nice to eat, a coffee for the mums and we can do a healthy and affordable shopping!”

“My first attendance with my child was amazing! There was so much to do for the kids. It was a very friendly atmosphere.”

“My older son has ADHD, and he normally needs extra attention and understanding, taking into account that the activities are held on a bus and that he might feel a bit nervous due to the lack of space, the staff there always helps and patiently help me.”

“I have been able to do my shopping on the bus whilst having my son upstairs. The bus always offers low-cost food which has been great in this cost-of-living crisis.”
