Food Connect is community based
Because Food Connect is a social enterprise, actively participating in—and giving back to—our community is an important part of our bottom line. We provide food to neighborhood soup kitchens through programs like Share the Harvest, help like-minded small businesses like Adam’s Apple, and are always looking for new opportunities for community involvement.
Here are ways in which we give to the community:
- Social Return on Investment. A more quantitative look at how we give back to our community.
- Share the Harvest. Our community’s way of making fresh, healthy produce available to soup kitchens and community centres in Sydney.
“Every week we get a lot of people coming up and asking ‘Can we have more veggies please’. Even if there is meat left! I always thought it would be the opposite. It is a great compliment to the great food you provide us” Rob Caslick, founder of the Inside Out Organic Soup Kitchen.
- Adam’s Apple. Even our home delivery service provider helps us give back to our community.
Here are the ways in which our community helps us:
- Scrumper’s Delight : a community mapping project for public fruit trees
