Jogging Carrots do Made In Hackney Veg Dash!

122% Raised

Cookery school & charity Made In Hackney is running a fundraising event to celebrate fruit and veg! Teams will be dashing about to 10 fruit & veg themed locations around Hackney a bit like  a big treasure hunt, taking selfies at each stop. Our team will be dressed up as carrots - just for fun and for charidee! 🥕

Our team members are Veryan, Jo & daughter Amandine, Sharon, Zoya, Susie & daughter Annie. Please sponsor us to help raise funds for Made In Hackney raise £20,000 to provide 10,000 vital meals and food bags to our community this winter. We are the Jogging Carrots!

About the appeal

Made In Hackney believe everyone should have access to enough nutritious, tasty food of their preference. The UK has more than enough food for everyone to be well nourished. But the reality is 8 million people go hungry on a daily basis. This is wrong. Made In Hackney's meal service tackles this injustice with nutritious, plant-based, culturally representative meals delivered by cycle couriers to community members who need it most.

The community meal service was launched in March 2020 as an emergency response to the COVID19 crisis. Many community members were struggling to access food and were putting themselves at risk to go shopping. Fast forward to Autumn 2022 and the community meal service is as needed now more than ever.
