A Growing Need

Grow to Give is a community food initiative providing fresh, locally grown food to food banks and community fridges across Buckinghamshire. Food charities have faced a significant increase in demand for food since the Pandemic started.

 

We believe that everyone should have access to fresh food.

Local allotment and home growers sometimes end up with too much of a particular fruit or vegetable. By donating their surplus they can support local people at a very difficult time, reducing any food waste and volunteering in a healthy and safe way in their community.

In 2021 we collected an amazing 3,200 kilos of fresh food from 14 allotments in the High Wycombe and Aylesbury areas. Since we started we have collected 4,800 kilos and we are hoping to collect even more in 2022!

Our local food charities also asked if we could give more ideas on how to use the fresh food. Encouraging sustainable growing and delicious but simple ways to cook with the fruit and veg continue to be our key focus in 2022.

We'd like to give special recognition and thanks to Buckinghamshire Council and Feedback Global for funding us again this year.

"It really doesn’t take much time or effort being a Champion and, with even modest donations from allotmenteers, its astonishing how much fresh produce we can collectively give"
