New stretch target

Any additional funding will help to grow our non-profit community cookery school so that we can support more communities in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and North Wales. Specifically, we'd like to:

- Purchase new equipment to help us deliver more cookery workshops and learning programmes.

- Hire additional members of staff so we can support foodbanks and people living in food poverty across the UK on a more regular basis.

- Produce the equivalent eBook and audiobook so that 'Secret dishes from around the world 2' can reach new audiences!


Secret dishes from around the world 2 will be the second fundraising recipe book by Bounceback Food CIC, an award-winning social enterprise that has been proactively fighting food poverty in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and North Wales since 2014.

Back The Book!

If we hit our all or nothing target we'll be able to commission 20 artists, who are all based in the 3 regions we support, to complete the design work required for each of the 20 countries that will feature in the book.

Who are the artists?

In January 2020 we launched an open call for artists based in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and North Wales - the 3 regions where our social enterprise Bounceback Food CIC has been proactively fighting food poverty since 2014.

Our selection panel were blown away by the volume and quality of applications (thanks to everyone who applied!) - eventually they shortlisted the final 20 artists: 

In the run up to our #BackTheBook crowdfunding campaign we've been featuring details of the 20 artists on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts on social media - give us a follow to see more of their work!

Or if you enter our raffle (tickets are listed in the rewards section on the right) you'll be included in our prize draw to win a selection of goodies donated to us by the participating artists, including exclusive prints, merchandise and homeware!

Who are we?

Bounceback Food CIC is a community cookery school that supports people living in food poverty in Greater Manchester, Cheshire & North Wales. We use the 'buy one, give one' model on our public cookery courses to generate free places for people using foodbanks/getting third sector support and sell staple items of food (pasta, soup, rice etc.) in the same way as part of our foodbank drive at market events. This proactive approach to tackling food poverty has helped us teach over 1,500 people how to cook, donate almost 10,000 items of food to foodbanks and provide over 50,000 meals as part of our wider community outreach work which also includes catering, supper clubs and corporate cook offs!

We are a non-profit CIC (Community Interest Company) - you can find out more about our social enterprise at www.bouncebackfood.co.uk.

What will the money be used for?

We'll use your donations to cover the costs of developing and self-publishing the book. This includes commissioning each of the artists to develop country specific artwork, additional graphic design costs and recipe development. If the campaign is successful, we expect to be able to publish the book in November 2020.

Any additional funding will go towards purchasing new equipment for our community cookery school, bringing new members of staff to our team so we can deliver more community outreach work and producing the equivalent eBook/audiobook.

With your support we will be able to make an incredible second recipe book that will also help people in need to Bounceback. Thank you!
