Christmas Food & Drink Gifts with a Positive Impact
The Christmas gifts that keep on giving - our food & drink hampers support the charity FoodCycle, so your gifting can have a positive impact this holiday.
As an online store delivering only Startup Food & Drinks brands, we believe that small businesses drive so much of the progress we see in the world - reducing food waste, using recycled packaging, trading fairly and promoting eco-friendly production & ingredients. That’s why we champion small businesses.
And when you make your purchasing decisions, you can champion these guys too. Gifting in particular is a great opportunity to amplify the success of positive impact businesses - whether it is for a birthday, Xmas present or just an ‘I’m thinking of you’ present, you can change the world by choosing a gift that is doing good.
That’s why we felt it was important to create a Mighty Small Xmas Food & Drink gift with a positive impact. Our Christmas Mystery box, filled with the bestselling of our products, is not only the perfect gift for your foodie loved one, but with every purchase, we’ll be proudly donating a meal to FoodCycle - our charity partner. It really is the gift that keeps on giving!
Who is our charity partner, FoodCycle?
Like us, community sits at the heart of everything FoodCyle does! The charity’s mission is to help end UK food poverty by feeding communities nutritious meals using surplus food and bringing people together to eat.
The charity’s impacts however, go far beyond food poverty. Their projects provide not only hot and healthy meals, but a space to make connections and for many, they are a rare opportunity to socialise.
- Since the first lockdown they have saved over 173,048kg of surplus food, which equates to an enormous 412,019 meals (based on an average meal weighing 420g FSA 2008)
- 85% of FoodCycle volunteers say they now have a better understanding of different cultures and backgrounds!
- FoodCycle estimated that nearly half of their guests live alone and that 75% reported feeling lonely. The charity’s projects create valuable opportunities for social contact, improving the mental wellbeing of guests and reducing feelings of loneliness.
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, FoodCycle now offers a ‘Cook and Collect’ takeaway service and has launched a ‘Check-in and Chat’ scheme, where volunteers call guests for a weekly catch up, maintaining the charity’s strong sense of community until things can return to normal. Volunteers have so far made over 7,000 calls to people all over the country!
We are really proud to be supporting this organisation in everything we do at Mighty Small.
