Vood Bar is a thriving vegan street food catering van based in Cornwall and we specialise in catering for weddings, events and private functions. We serve delicious hot foods, cakes, treats, soft drinks and we also turn into a cocktail bar at request. We try our best to buy local where ever possible and we always offer a gluten free option when we are at events.
'Best street food I have ever had. Satay wraps, followed by a delicious chocolate and raspberry cake and the most amazing chocolate and cherry pot. Whole family loved your food. Good luck, you guys are fabulous, the South West needs you'
Vood Bar was founded by me, Danielle Clancy. I previously worked with children and I came across poverty on a regular basis. I got to see what it was like living in poverty and I know the challenges it brings. I witnessed families without food, children who never ate fruit or vegetables, parents in tears because they had another bill to pay that they couldn't afford, parents who lost their jobs and went onto losing their homes...
In the last eight years we have seen a massive increase in the use of Food Banks throughout the UK, particularly in the South West. In 2009 there were 25,899 people who required an emergency three day supply of food increasing to 1,109,309 by 2016. That's a staggering 42 times more! Credit - Food & Cornwall
At Vood Bar, we try our very best to help our community by donating left over foods to shelters and refuges and we give food to people who are homeless when the opportunities arise. But we want to do more!
We aim to create the Vood Box, a large catering trailer which will be permanently placed in one of our towns in Cornwall and opened daily for people to enjoy our delicious vegan food. It will provide the community with the following:
- We will run a buy one give one programme where any customer can buy a meal of their own and give an extra £3 which we will match to fund a meal for someone in need. We will therefore be putting in 50% towards a meal every time a customer does. We aim to provide at least 3500 meals a year through this programme.
- We will act as a sign post to provide information to support with common challenges like homelessness and unemployment. We will point people in the right direction so they are able to access the support they need.
- We will also run four charity events a year from the Vood Box where the proceeds will go to different local animal charities. This will help to feed animals, pay for medical care and help towards training pets to prepare them for adoption.
- We will offer people living in poverty the chance to spend time in the Vood Box where we will train them in customer services, basic cookery skills, kitchen safety and how to eat healthily on a budget. This will increase confidence, teach them about how to eat a more balanced diet, increase knowledge in cooking, improve social skills, give them a sense of achievement and improve employability skills.
- The Vood Box will create two new exciting job opportunities initially for our community where we will provide full training. This will increase as we grow.
- If we reach our stretch targets then we will run regular workshops and masterclasses where we will teach people how to bake yummy cakes. Will be also be aiming to go into schools and do talks to inspire young people around making a difference.
Through our programme, we aim to change the lives of people living in poverty. We will be reducing hunger in Cornwall, offering children healthy meals and we will be giving families a sense of hope!
Crowdfunding is important to us because this project will not happen without your help! The money raised through Crowdfunder will enable us to initially start the project. Here is a diagram to show you how the money will be spent.
If we reach our target, we will start working on this project right away. We aim to buy a trailer before Christmas and work on making it super special over the winter. We aim to have the Vood Box up and running by April 2018.
