Food to Local Families

Blog Header Image

Following a pilot programme last year, we are pleased to share that our restaurant providers, Culinera, are now part of an ongoing food distribution system, in partnership with Olio.

So far 33kg of surplus food has been donated. In the month of October, 100% of food donated from Hertswood was able to be shared, with these donations supporting eight local familes! Olio estimates that our donations so far equate to 178kg of carbon dioxide emissions avoided.

We are proud of the continuing efforts of Culinera to support local communities around Hertswood and other schools. Families who would like to benefit can learn more at
