Cork-based Velo Coffee Roasters has donated €10,500 worth of Velo Coffee to FoodCloud.
A multi award-winning business, Velo Coffee Roasters roasts a mix of single origins along with its own original blends in its roastery on the fringe of Cork city.
“The work of FoodCloud is crucial for many local community organisations; it’s great to know that we can play a small part in helping them along their way in their mission,” said business owner Rob.
FoodCloud works with producers and distributors nationwide which have volumes of surplus food. Through partnering with charities and groups such as breakfast clubs, homeless hostels and family support services, FoodCloud is able to distribute surplus food to those in need. These charities benefit through making savings on their food costs, allowing them to relocate their funding towards their core service and support their underlying mission.
Rob and his team were made aware of how FoodCloud is supporting communities across Ireland from an Aldi Bulletin, who the local coffee roasters are stockists with.
“When we heard of the great work they do, we knew we had to get involved,” he said.
Rob and his team say they would urge any producer or distributors to get involved with the great work that FoodCloud are doing across Ireland and the UK.
