Be Enriched Elements
Be Enriched Elements (BEE) repurposes food waste to reduce food insecurity and build supportive communities. In the past year, BEE rescued over 6,000kg of surplus food from retailers that would have otherwise gone to landfill (reducing use of energy, fuel, water, land and time), and used it to provide meals for people facing social or economic insecurity, volunteer-led cooking lessons for the community, holiday mealtime activities for families whose children receive free meals in school, and culinary-based employment training for people with higher learning needs due to illness, disability or time away from the workplace. A grant from The Fore will allow the CEO to move from front-line work to focus on scaling and strategy, enabling the charity to increase its number of volunteers, develop new corporate partnerships and increase surplus food donations.
