Helistrat Support The Real Junk Food Project in Brighton to Feed Bellies, Not Bins

 In Circular Economy, News, Press Release, Sustainability

Leading sustainability management consultancy, Helistrat, volunteer to help feed the people of Brighton. 

Giving back to the community plays an important role within the culture at Helistrat and we actively encourage our staff to support charities close to their hearts.

Adam and Megan from our Contract Administration Team recently started a food collection at our Main Office in Portsmouth in readiness for their day at The Real Junk Food Project Brighton. Throughout the day, they supported with food preparation, serving and clean up. More than 220 people, who may have otherwise gone hungry, were fed by the Brighton Team using the innovative ‘pay as you feel’ concept. 

Commenting on the support, Helistrat CEO, Harvey Laud, said:

“ It is always encouraging to see the team offering their support to the local community and by providing one fully paid Volunteering Day to each employee,  we are able to support our staff and charities in a way that is mutually beneficial”

Commenting on the volunteering,  Sarah from the Real Junk Food Project Brighton, said:

“Adam & Megan made a valuable contribution to the running of the cafe when they visited us. It was great to share our work with them.  They were very interested and at times overwhelmed with the volume of food waste they were witnessing. We thank them for taking the time to come and volunteer with us.”
