The Flavour Project focuses on preventing food waste and creating jobs
Intern Louis @ Bristol Estate Community Hub
As lockdown has restricted community use ,the project has hired out the Bristol Estate Community Room kitchen through the winter. Organisations partnering together on the project - Feedback, FareShare Sussex and the Brighton & Hove Food Partnership - have had to keep numbers in the space down to a maximum of 4 people at any time due to Covid, however progress with their food processing. Local young people have also now been hired on internships paid at the real living wage.
The Feedback team, having gleaned and stored several tonnes of squash in the autumn from local farms, is making pumpkin soup. Jars will be sold in independent shops in Brighton under the brand ‘Sussex Surplus’ as well as distributed through a network of local projects supporting people in food insecurity. Meanwhile, the Brighton & Hove Food Partnership have purchased a large dehydrator to create dried vegetable stew packs to go out through a network of organisations providing emergency food support.
