Warburtons is donating 85,000 fresh products from its Brimsdown depot to families in need across the borough.

The famous baked goods brand has recently launched The Warburtons Foundation, which will donate one million fresh products to schools, foodbanks and community groups across the UK by the end of this year.

Enfield has been identified as a key area to benefit, with local charities including North Enfield Foodbank and The Felix Project being given fresh Warburtons products.

The Warburtons Foundation is also offering community groups in Enfield a chance to apply for grants from £400 up to £20,000, with previous support provided to projects such as Seeds For Growth, which helps improve health, wellbeing and access to outdoor and community for people from disadvantaged communities.

To help improve food education, The Warburtons Foundation has also developed a national schools programme designed to engage children on healthy eating and food provenance, with a target of reaching 1.5 million children in the next three years.

Jonathan Warburton, chair of Warburtons, said: “For as long as I can remember, our family has been committed to supporting local communities, and have been supporting organisations and schools in Enfield since the depot opened.

“We are launching The Warburtons Foundation to reaffirm this support, with an ambitious one million product donations for distribution this year. Our local Enfield depot is supporting this national goal, aiming to distribute 85,000 freshly baked products this year.

“In such uncertain times we’ll continue to listen and act so that we can support families as best we can, from product donations to education and new community grants.”
