Judy Dow, head of philanthropy at Suffolk Community Foundation said, “Deprivation goes beyond income and includes other forms of disadvantage, including food poverty.” Paddy Bishopp, chair of the Food and Drink Fund continues, “As a large rural county, food, drink and agriculture are important to Suffolk’s economy, with agriculture employing over 10,000 people, and food and drink processing employing a further 9,000 people.
“The aim of the Food and Drink Fund is to support charitable activities addressing local needs particularly those where there is a direct link with food and drink. The Fund will support charities, voluntary and community groups throughout Suffolk through a small grants programme.”
Beneficiaries of the fund so far include REACH Community Projects, Greener Growth CIC and Stour Valley Vineyard Church.
