Food waste is a big issue in the UK. The average household throws away £470 worth of food every year. And at the same time 4 million people in the UK are living in food poverty.

The Community Fridge is a simple response. At the Fridge you can drop off good but unwanted food, and anyone can help themselves to what is on the shelf.

The fridge is for retail businesses, restaurants and individual people to share perfectly good food that is edible and would otherwise go to waste. The operators of this Fridge (Edventure Frome CIC) make sure that the fridge is a safe environment for food sharing.

The Frome fridge is run by and for the community in Frome and they need support to make it work, cover their basic monthly running costs, and grow the movement of community fridges in the UK.

We were delighted to learn about the Frome Fridge initiative as it's very local to us and being an organic food company we were enthusiastic about a way for unwanted good food waste to reach those that need it.

So we went along in July this year and donated some of our yoghurts, that were in date, but not with enough in date days left to able to be sold to our retail customers - so perfect for the Fridge.

We have plans to make this a regular visit on our delivery van in the very near future, whenever we have some yoghurts available.

Cancer Research
For the second year running, in 2013 Brown Cow Organics will be supporting Cancer Research through the Woodstoke event.
Woodstoke is a private party held annually in July for invited guests, to raise funds for Cancer Research. The idea is very simple, they erect marquees, book some bands, lay on a bar and some food and invite some people to come - hopefully everyone gets to hear some good live music - drink some good ales and wines, and raise some money for charity. Brown Cow Organics were delighted to be asked to be 'the food' for this event with our 'herd on the moove' BBQ serving a variety of our award winning beef specialities whilst helping raise money for this very worthy charity. This is strictly an invitation only annual event, you can find out more by viewing their website here

2012 -Slow Ride to Turin in memory of Philippa Corbin
In October 2012 a team of people are going to cycle from Axminster in Devon to the Slow Food Salone del Gusto festival in Turin, Italy, in memory of Philippa Corbin; a fun, bright, beautiful person from the River Cottage team who tragically took her own life in January 2011 at the age of 27 whilst suffering from an horrendous illness: depression.

The aims of the ride are to raise awareness of depression and to raise money for two charities, both of which work to help people who are suffering from depression in different ways: The Human Givens Foundation and The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.

Slow Food is an international movement which strives to preserve traditional and regional cuisine and aims to encourage the production and consumption of good, clean and fair food. Philippa was an active member of Slow Food and believed strongly in its ethics.

In total there are 28 riders and 4 support crew taking part in this adventure to Turin. Ages of cyclists range from from 24 to 73 and include a doctor, a preserve maker, a vet, some gardeners, a cameraman, a couple of geoscientists and a beatboxing vicar.

In cycling to Turin, they want to promote Slow Food and everything it stands for whilst raising funds for these two charities, and take time to enjoy good, local produce along the way.

We worked with Phillipa through our River Cottage partnership and were deeply saddened by her death. When her Mother Pam asked us if we would like to support the charity bike ride we were very eager to get involved. The Slow Ride to Turin is the best possible tribute to her talent and passion.

We are therefore delighted to supply the yoghurts for the breakfast at Axminster Canteen start, a donation to the charity fund itself and we are working directly with Pam to produce a special flavour River Cottage Yoghurt in memory of Phillipa and to further support the charity funds being raised.
