The background

As you will probably know I have been working hard to set up No Fuss Meals for Busy Parents as a Community Interest Company. I've been recognised with some amazing awards within the industry including being NNBN Business person of the Year, Best New Start-Up and Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards Silver 'Food Hero'. I've even received an associateship from the Council for Awards of the Royal Agricultural Societies for my work engaging consumers in the world of food and farming.

I've now got everything in place and have started to apply for grant funding to assist with the social enterprise's key objectives which are:

  • Bridge a gap between UK food producers and consumers

Having a better understanding of how food is produced in the UK with food provenance, what is in season each month, what food businesses are in their area, how farmers play their part in shaping the landscape.

  • Educate adults of how to prepare ‘no fuss meals’ following some simple recipes

Having a variety of simple recipes to follow using seasonal ingredients providing mealtime inspiration, enabling them to cook from scratch

  • -Promote the sustainable and economic benefits of buying British and shopping locally

Having a better understanding of what impact people’s buying habits have on the environment around them.

Lowering food miles, sustaining rural economies with job opportunities and encouraging local tourism

The vision is that children will grow up eating a variety of home cooked meals and less of a reliance on highly processed meals. Informed choices and cooking habits will change as parental knowledge will have been enhanced and this will instil long term benefits to the next generation of young adults.

Also by promoting UK farmers and food producers, this helps to sustain rural communities with jobs, services and tourism; shining a light on what is available in season and close to home helps to lower food miles, become more self-sufficient as a national and sustain small independent businesses.

It encourages people to support local businesses rather than purchasing food shipped from across the globe and instigate change in their buying habits.

The need

Currently, funders are looking for specific projects to fund. Whilst I have been successful in this area, I have spent much time putting these applications together and not been able to dedicate time to sourcing core funding for operating costs.

Equally much of my work can be supported by corporate sponsorship so I'd really appreciate the opportunity to work with businesses who would like to engage with my consumer and farming-based audiences.

Thank you

The encouragement I have received has been overwhelming and I want to do all I can to help more people to cook from scratch, Buy British and Shop Locally supporting UK food and farming.

There are so many exciting plans for the future that I'm hoping I can share these with you soon
