Started as an informal collective of restaurants, food businesses, and community organisations that came together across-sectors to support independent food & hospitality, and help feed the city of Bristol during the Covid-19 crisis. This unique collaboration brought together some of the city's best independent restaurants, with local farmers, food retailers and community food projects, to support Bristol city council's emergency food provision during lockdown.
They created secure production kitchens in closed restaurants around the city, and delivered a nutritious ready-meals service, which saw 12,000 meals supplied to frontline workers and vulnerable communities. Robert De Naja from Massive Attack helped in the kitchens and also produced a special limited edition art print to help raise funds. It was only available online and we helped raise awareness on the streets throughout Bristol using posters and billboards. The 10 day fire-sale raised over £100,000 for Bristol Food Union.
Fighting hunger and tackling food waste, they support over 170 organisations, including hostels, day centres, lunch clubs, addiction agencies, young people's projects and refugee centres, in delivering a food service to those who need it most and giving support on nutrition, food hygiene and more. Like all charities, 2020 has been a tough year for fundraising, by utilising an outdoor poster campaign, they reached a new audience to help raise awareness and donations to help their ongoing work.
FoodStock 2020 is a campaign to build a stockpile of emergency food and the infrastructure to deliver it over a difficult winter. As Covid-19 resurged across the nation during November 2020, FareShare South West built a stockpile of food and an action plan to deliver it to the most critically vulnerable in the South West.
