“Our project will be heading in a slightly different direction in 2022, in the hope of continuing to address the crisis in inequality made so much worse by the Covid pandemic, but to do that in a less time-intensive way. Check back here in early New Year for more on that, and in the meantime, please contribute now so we can carry out our ‘traditional’ food bag deliveries on January 8th. And please get in touch if you’re interested in helping out with admin, bag packing or driving: 07731 845211; firstname.lastname@example.org.”

About the prize draw: as much as possible we will avoid posting items, instead we’ll do local delivery and collection to keep environmental and financial costs down. Please bear this in mind if you’re from outside of the Bristol area.
BASE and Roses is a food distribution collective formed to tackle issues around food security in Bristol. We are delivering weekly, free food parcels to people in Bristol and distributing cooked meals to homeless people.Our initiative is based on principles of solidarity and mutual aid. We are not a charitable organisation. Anybody can self refer and request a food parcel if they need one; our distribution is not means tested.Our food distribution is run by volunteers with a small budget and is predominantly reliant on donations from food suppliers. We are aiming to get as many food donations as possible for the distribution, however to ensure our food parcels contain a substantial amount of food and a balanced selection, we are buying in extra food.We urgently need funds to pay fuel costs for drivers and to buy additional food for the parcels.
