Like so many, we at BreadnButter have had to change the way we work since the outbreak of Covid-19. For the immediate future we can no longer bring communities together in order to socialise and learn cookery skills. We have however, thanks to some generous funding, been able to adapt in order to cook up nutritious meals and deliver them to our local communities in Barnet, Brent and Enfield.
Covid-19 Meal Service
Working with our network of schools and Edmonton Community Partnership we are able to supply nutritious meals to community groups and households in Brent and Enfield. Sil Aneru is our Nigerian Chef cooking up traditional foods for the Afro-Caribbean communities in Enfield.
We started off as a small team but we are now proud to say we have a team of volunteers each day.
Each week The Felix Project donate up to 100 crates of fresh and ambient food – everyday is like Masterchef as we get our creative hats on to decide what meals we can make from our bounty. We’re catering for the isolated, elderly, vulnerable families and the high-risk BAME communities so variety is key.
Communities coming together
We’ve continued to support our local East Finchley food bank but we’ve reached out to Muswell Food Bank, Colindale Food Bank, Tottenham Food Banks and the homeless men’s shelter in Edmonton too.
Protecting the vulnerable
We’re not just present in Barnet though, thanks to funding from Tesco Bags for Life we are able to provide meals to the elderly and isolated in Mendip house in Edmonton Green.
