Ooooby Winchester is a Community Interest Company (CIC). We channel 100% of our profits towards our mission: to put small-scale sustainable farming back at the heart of the food system we all depend on and to create a stronger local food system for all in the Winchester District. We contribute to this every week when we deliver our boxes to your door, as we work closely with growers and producers within Hampshire and pay them fairly. However, we want and need to go further. Locally produced, organically grown food is better for our health and better for the planet and it should be available to everyone, regardless of income levels. As a CIC we will use our profits, leverage external funding where necessary, work in partnership with local organisations and campaign for wider policy measures to increase access to good food for all.
Ooooby Hampshire sits on the steering group of WFP, a cross-sector partnership working to create a healthy and sustainable food culture for people living and working in the Winchester District, regardless of income. Also, in our efforts to support the nationwide sustainable food movement we are members of the Soil Association and supporters of the Landworker's Alliance.
Ooooby Hampshire is proud to be a member of Action Hampshire, a charity that helps the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Hampshire to deliver great services to local people and communities, and speak up for the changes they would like to see.
FirstBite is a community focussed, not-for-profit social enterprise, using surplus food to fight food waste and promote healthy lifestyle practices to combat social isolation and improve wellbeing. Our systems ensure there is limited food left over each week (often there is none), but any surplus is donated to FirstBite.
We bank with Triodos Bank, one of the most sustainable banks in the world, making money work for positive social, environmental and cultural change.
