Cherish Food

Uneven distribution of resources and waste are a leading cause of poverty. We launched the Cherish Food programme in November 2011 with a core belief that women are able to become a strong force for the sharing of resources in the community by building their skills and wisdom. In doing so, they can help relieve the burden that uneven distribution of resources and waste places on their communities. We have been delighted to receive funding from the Environment and Conservation Fund in March 2021 to continue the project of food collection and distribution. With this support, we are able to expand our services and contribute to produce collection, the local economy, and communal gatherings.
