Bounceback Food CIC is a community cookery school that supports people living in food poverty in Greater Manchester, Cheshire & North Wales.

They use the ‘buy one, give one’ model on their public cookery courses to generate free places for people who are using foodbanks or getting third sector support.

They also sell a range of pasta, rice, tinned food, soup and cereal at their market stall. The same item you buy is then given to the nearest foodbank!

This proactive approach to tackling food poverty has helped them teach over 1,500 people how to cook, seen them donate almost 10,000 items of food to foodbanks and provide over 50,000 meals as part of their wider community outreach work which also includes catering, supper clubs and corporate cook offs!

Angie was a wonderful expert to work with. She gave me a variety of tasks to help grow our social enterprise and used her industry expertise to help develop our plans to scale up.
