Resurrected and reinvented: Suffolk's Covid-19 emergency food response team.
The Teapot Project collects edible surplus food that would otherwise become landfill waste, from restaurants, supermarkets and other food businesses. They redistribute that food to vulnerable people, charities and third sector organisations across Suffolk.
Since March 2020 the team has helped to feed hundreds of local people regularly, by saving, cooking and redistributing thousands of kilos of food from many businesses, including Nando’s and Proctor’s Sausages. While the project continues to send out food parcels to individuals, families, community groups and charities, they are also trialing a 3 Box Meal plan scheme with a local sheltered housing organisation, where household recipients receive three easy-to-lift boxes, delivered straight to their door, containing a variety of food groups representative of what they might pick up at the local store.
Fresh food, straight to your door, and the best part: you can pay as you feel for it.
