Ladies and gentlemen, esteemed individuals of all ages, from the venerable grannies to the newest additions to our earthly realm, and, of course, our non-binary pals and genderless amorphous blobs,
It is with great jubilation that we announce a development of such significance that it has left us collectively in need of fresh pants: Enterprise Flex E Rent, yes, THE Enterprise, is graciously supporting our initiative and food bank!
We wish to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our friends at the Shrewsbury Enterprise Flex E Rent Division, whose generosity will see us equipped with vehicles throughout the festive season so we can save as much surplus food as possible, with food bank collections planned for the entire upcoming year. The first collection was scheduled for yesterday!
Quite simply, it means we can do more. It means more food for our food bank, and more food for our fundraising so we can carry out EVEN MORE community-minded shenanigans. This means our project can grow even more and continue to support multiple communities. This means more people in crisis can benefit from our services.
This support to our fleet is absolutely vital to our project, particularly over this winter. Thanks to the unrelenting cost of living crisis we are expecting a surge in the amount of people needing help in the next few months… and a decent amount of them would have never had to use a food bank before.
In order to support our own food bank and as many food banks as possible in the UK we have launched the £3 challenge. The rules are oh-so-simple: buy as much food as possible from your local supermarket for £3, and then donate it to your local food bank. Share a snapshot of yourself and your goodies using #notjust3quid, so as many people as possible will see how fabulous and generous you are and be inspired to take part themselves. Don’t forget to tag your local food bank! Click here more information.
Once again, a massive thank you to Enterprise Flex E Rent! We are so excited to be working with you.
NotJUST are a non-profit waste prevention project and humanitarian organisation, the result of a team that have been colaborating since 2015 under various names - and recently all joined together. Our work spans many different projects and locations but is tied together with two key goals: to fight waste and empower minority and disadvantaged communities.
