The more money we raise the more we can do to support those in need


Established in May 2017 with just four employees, Well-Fed has grown into a thriving social enterprise employing 13 people and creating enormous social and economic impact within our community and beyond. Trading from our first premises within the Whiteinch Centre, Well-Fed created a safe social space open to the entire community. 

Over the past 3 years Well-Fed has transformed a small kitchen and cafe space (circa 1000 sqft) into a thriving and flourishing business, with a turnover in the last financial year of £350,000, although more remarkable than this, is the social and economic impact that has been created. Being a truly community led organisation, Well-Fed has worked to tackle the issues identified by the community, in their community. Food poverty, social isolation, lack of opportunity and barriers to inclusion have all been identified as key social issues within the Whiteinch area of the city and as an organisation Well-Fed have responded by providing:

Over 33,000 FREE meals to children and families within the local community (Monetary value £130,000)

FREE school holiday activity and meal provision to over 300 children and their families across all school holidays (Monetary value £165,000)

Redistributing over 7000 crates of FREE (approx 125 Tons) surplus food through our dignified food pantry model (Monetary Value £300,000)

Operating a FREE homework and learning club with food provision for an average 60 children and their families each week (Monetary value £45,000)

Providing a full program of FREE wellbeing activities inc. training and volunteering opportunities to adults and young people (Monetary value £60,000)

Hosting over 50 FREE community events with food provision including Christmas Day 2017, 2018 & 2019 (Monetary value £37,000)

An enormous total equivalent Monetary value of £737,000 invested in the Whiteinch community.

As our community engagement has continued to grow year on year and the demand for our service becoming increasingly more complex and multi-faceted, it is clear that Well-Fed has become a much needed and much relied on service to the Whiteinch community. 

We are now facing our biggest challenge and we need your help, please donate today and support Well-Fed to support Glasgow's communities.

Thank-You,

Christopher Gray,

Managing Director
