Feedback from front-line professional agencies

Andy Bulled, Site Excellence Manager, Bidfood – Harlow

“Since the formation of the Bounty Club, Bidfood – Harlow have been able to divert more chilled products away from landfill. This partnership helps support local organisations working on the front line and low-income families. It will also help us reach our aim of eliminating all surplus food sent to landfill.

Claire Cochrane, Housing Support Worker, Family Mosaic

“The fresh produce you give to our young people makes a huge difference to them. Not only does it help financially as they are on low incomes, (most of them at college); it has also helped with their diets as some are living on ready meals, and now with your support are cooking healthy balanced meals”

Ann Tierney, Gateway Centre Volunteer

“Since being in receipt of the Bounty Club fresh food, our work with children, young adults and families has been increased to being able to offer fresh food items that families do not have the finance themselves to bring into their diets. The food has also been of such a wide variety of origins that there are many kinds that some people have never seen before, which has also been educational.”
