We are so grateful to all our fabulous FoodPioneer supporters out there for backing the One Pot Project.

The pandemic has left many people out of work or struggling to get by on reduced incomes and referrals to food banks have increased significantly.  As a result, some have no choice but to eat cold food, or meals that require only a kettle or microwave. Distributing slow cookers is a great solution to create healthy, hearty meals and will help those experiencing food and fuel poverty. BIG THANKS to The Worthing Herald for running this article on The One Pot Project and helping us exceed our crowd funding goal.

By March 25th ‘The One Pot Slow Cooker Appeal’  successfully raised £1,330 with 52 supporters in 42 days! Over exceeding our target…

Last week on the 27th March we were able to collect a LORRY FULL of slow cookers ready for their new home. Huge thank you to Robert Dyas in Worthing for securing the slow cookers, to the Worthing Lions for donating slow cookers and recipes and to the Sidney Walter Centre for storing these little cooking machines. Finally, a massive thank you  to the team at Morrisons and their Community Matters Ambassador, Joanne, who very kindly supplied hundreds of herbs, stock cubes and wooden spoons which will be going out with the cookers.

Milestone today – just 4 days later we have started the delivery campaign! Ed Kilroy, Emma Baars and the team (pictured above) are out and about in the local community starting delivery of over 300 slow cookers to those in financial difficulty. More updates to follow soon…
