SWfruitandveg is on a mission to empower communities to directly support their most vulnerable. When donating money today we often have zero visibility into the impact – swfruitandveg is offering a way to help those in need on a very personal level. We are a social enterprise with a localised community focus, providing South-West London with a platform to take care of their most vulnerable while staying healthy with restaurant-quality produce without the need to leave their home.
How we work:
1. By sourcing our produce from New Covent Garden Market we support traders whose business has shrunk unprecedently due to recent restaurant and hotel closures. When we go to the market on Monday and Thursday nights, huge areas of the space have been abandoned entirely due to the impact of coronavirus.
2. We give our community the opportunity to make a measurable difference to those who are isolated and struggling in the local area. The ‘donate a box’ facility on our website directly provides fresh produce to charities and local community kitchens which have been set up to provide hot meals to those who need it and fresh food to the elderly and vulnerable. We have already supplied over 200 boxes of fresh food to local community kitchens, but we would like to see this number in the thousands over the coming months.
As well as working with community kitchens, we facilitate and fulfil donations to specific people who are known to be at risk, isolated and vulnerable. I’ve personally experienced delivering boxes to such people and it’s clear what a difference these gestures make.
3. We deliver healthy, restaurant quality produce to those in the south west London area, allowing them to stay safe at home.
