Recipe Meal Kits

Since August 2020 we’ve been producing our Recipe Meal Kits.  The creation & distribution of these kits tackle food insecurity, food waste & provide an educational platform where beneficiaries receive food but also learn new skills and are able to cook a healthy meal from scratch with their family.
