Help us to scale up our social impact and fight food poverty nationwide!

by Bounceback Food CIC in Manchester, England, United Kingdom

We're building a community cookery school that supports people living in food poverty across the UK…

COVID-19 has significantly impacted how Bounceback Food CIC, our non-profit community cookery school, operates. Prior to lockdown, our outreach work (cookery workshops, foodbank drive at market events & catering services) predominantly supported people in Greater Manchester, Cheshire & North Wales. As the economic impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic starts to unfold, it is clear that we need to innovate and adapt our model so that we are able to support people living in food poverty nationwide.


Our Coronavirus Response 

In keeping with the proactive way in which we’ve been fighting food poverty since 2014, our immediate Coronavirus response included:

  • Pledging 5 million free licenses to our online Cooking & Nutrition Portal.
  • Donating all remaining stock to our foodbank drive in the North-West.
  • Adapting our catering service to deliver meals door to door.
  • Launching online cookery workshops that provide free places for our beneficiaries.

Social Impact To Date

Since 2014 we have taught more than 2,500 people how to cook including stroke survivors, young carers, foodbank beneficiaries and elderly people living in sheltered accommodation. We have also donated over 10,000 items of food to foodbanks as part of our foodbank drive and generated almost 100,000 meals for people in need via our catering provision and workshops. As the furlough scheme comes to an end and claims for Universal Credit soar, it's vital that we scale up our social impact and fight food poverty nationwide!

Our Vision

Our team in central Manchester is now focussed on building a community cookery school that supports people living in food poverty across the UK by:

  • Ensuring their nearest foodbank is stocked with good quality items of nutritious food & hygiene products.
  • Providing them the opportunity to learn how to cook for free and supporting them with career progression in the food industry.
  • Providing free hot nutritious meals at community events.
  • Enabling them to learn about cooking, budgeting, nutrition, meal planning and reducing food waste with the provision of free access to our Cooking & Nutrition Portal.


Partner Charities

As part of this plan, we are now looking to expand our network of partner charities who benefit from:

  • Free places on our monthly public cook-alongs!
  • Free access to our Cooking & Nutrition Portal!

To find out how to apply to become one of our partner charities, please email info@bouncebackfood.co.uk and a member of our team will send you further information.
