Holiday Hunger

During the summer holidays of 2019, our

sites were busy supporting those who need it

most, through our nation-wide 'Action Against

Holiday Hunger' campaign. The campaign

aimed to help thousands of children across

the UK by engaging with local communities

and supporting their holiday provision

projects; fuelling them with supplies as well

as nutritious meals, cooked by our own chefs,

and volunteering support from depot


During the six-week school break, five of our

depots supported individual local holiday

provision projects around the country,

including Chepstow, which worked with

Swansea East MP, Carolyn Harris, to support

the Swansea Kids' Lunch Club, feeding over

6,000 children through the summer.

Four of our nine depots that took part,

including Wakefield, Nottingham, Stowmarket

and Worthing, collaborated with FareShare,

the UK's largest charity fighting hunger and

food waste, and one of our UK partners, to

support over 110 projects across the UK. Our

Development Chefs volunteered their time at

FareShare beneficiaries, to cook nutritious

meals from the surplus stock donated, as well

as providing helpful advice for families on

how to cook on a budget and make food go


We also supported Hertfordshire Catering

Ltd's Fit Fed and Read scheme, as well as

Southampton City Catering's #LunchCrowd

initiative, by providing funding, cooking and

recipe development from our Development

Chef, Wayne Wright. Along with this,

Whenever our customers buy either Tilda Brown &

White rice (5kg), Wholegrain Basmati Rice (5kg) or

Easycook Brown Wholegrain Rice (5kg), they

contribute to Mary's Meal. This charity provides a

meal every school day to children in 15 countries

across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean,

attracting them into the classroom to receive an

education, which could be their route out of poverty.

This partnership started in 2018 and to date, our

sales of Tilda rice have provided 53,094 meals.
