Support our Crowdfunder
Catering can be a wasteful business. We want to change that.
We are launching our biggest and most exciting Crowdfunder campaign yet, for £5000 to build a full catering kitchen on site at the Kindness Sharehouse Wakefield. The kitchen will offer training and placements to young care leavers from the Sanctuary Project, a semi-independent accommodation for young people leaving care in Wakefield. They do a fantastic job supporting these young people to live enriched lives and we're honoured to work with them to deliver Zelig. Instead of focusing on their background as care leavers, we aim to empower them as individuals by seeing the difference they can make to their community and the planet and hopefully to gain fulfilling employment in the industry. With your help, we want to spread #kindness to more people in our community, and take the message of stopping food waste to new audiences.
But we need your support!
Catering provides a vital source of income for us and a self-sustaining zero waste food solution using only surplus ingredients.
We need to raise £5000 to cover the basic costs for the build. The project is also up for £5000 of match funding from Legal & General. The money is available on a first-come-first-served basis between multiple projects, so to have as much support as quickly as possible is the goal. This extra funding means direct investment in our training to make Zelig the best experience possible for young people.
If you can, a pledge would mean the world to us, and a share and some kind words on social media goes a long way. Check out our our rewards on offer for different donation amounts. Help us build Zelig, spread #kindness and feed more bellies, not bins!
