Re-Vive is a social enterprise working to redistribute food waste to the most vulnerable in our society to help alleviate food poverty. We work with a primary school in Leeds, increasing access to healthy food by running a pay as you feel stall which provides a range of fruit and veg which would otherwise be sent to landfill due to their aesthetic or best before date. The profit made from the sale of this food is going to be invested into an educational programmes on food waste, responsible consumption, and how to lead a sustainable life for the school children. We are also hoping to invest some of our profits into running cooking classes for both children and their parents to encourage healthy eating.
The projects three main pillars are:
– Access (to healthy food)
– Education (on sustainable living)
– Action (implementing practical steps to achieving a green lifestyle)
What Global Goals are we working towards?
2 – Zero Hunger
3 – Good Health and Wellbeing
12 – Responsible Consumption and Production
13 – Climate Action
How can you help us?
We currently need support on how to network with local suppliers to provide us with surplus food to sell at our stall.
