The Food and Drink Fund was set up in June 2018 to support charitable activities addressing local needs, particularly those where there is a direct link with food and drink. The Fund supports charities and voluntary & community groups throughout Suffolk through a small grants programme. The beneficiaries of the fund typically include foodbanks, lunch clubs and meal deliveries.
We have sponsored and supported the foundation by providing on-going strategic marketing support together with new branding, collateral material designs and a new website coming soon.
Leaders from Suffolk’s Food and Drink industry, including Paddy Bishop, Tim Rowan-Robinson, William Buchanan and Barry Chevalier-Guild have also lent their personal support to the Suffolk Community Foundation to help build a special food & drink themed fund that is distributed to charities and community groups relating to nutritional deprivation.
The fund supports projects addressing one or more of the following themes:
- Improving health and well-being – providing emergency food provisions, providing meals and refreshments to help bring communities together, supporting those experiencing challenges in their lives.
- Overcoming problems – helping people who are experiencing difficult circumstances due to mental ill health, bereavement or financial difficulty.
