NutriBox launch Community Christmas Meal Campaign
Healthy fast food business NutriBox is hoping to feed as many vulnerable people as possible this Christmas across Stoke-on-Trent with their Community Christmas Meal campaign.
These people may be in crisis, isolated or in need of a little extra support and cheer this festive season. The team are keen to hear from organisations in Stoke-on-Trent who work with vulnerable groups or individuals in the community who they think would benefit from a freshly prepared meal this Christmas.
The team at NutriBox have committed to deliver a freshly prepared, nutritionally balanced meal to a person in need on Monday 23 December this year. They’ll be cooking up one meal for every £5 in donations the campaign receivesbetween now and the 15 December cut–off date.
Customers of NutriBox can choose to ‘pay it forward’ by paying for an extra meal or meals along with their order, but the business is also looking for local businesses and other organisations to get involved through fundraisers and donations.
“Our ethos is about creating a culture where healthy food is achievable and enjoyable for everyone,” said NutriBox co-founder Marvin Molloy. “For some people it’s an issue of time and convenience, for others it’s about education, but many people don’t have a choice at all. We want to show those people that there is someone out there thinking of them this Christmas.”
There are at least 2,058 food banks in the UK according to the Independent Food Aid Network, and at least 2,500 independent food aid providers. The Trussell Trust, the UK’s largest network of food banks, handed out more than 1 million food packs in 2017. Food poverty is an issue that causes deep distress to families and individuals in Stoke-on-Trent every single day.
Rather than sending out Christmas cards this year, the team at NutriBox are urging businesses to consider donating that money instead to feed vulnerable local people.
