The values that sit at the heart of Ooooby Hampshire are: *Community *Kindness *Nourishment *Compassion *Transparency *Resilience *Co-operation. See below for how these values shape everything we do.
We plan to achieve our aims through effective co-operation, enabling every grower, producer, distributor and consumer to have a real ownership stake in the project, and share in its success. We’re working on the details of the structure at present, with a commitment to place co-operative values and principles at the heart of the organisation, whilst simultaneously creating an investable entity that will be attractive to people who share our vision and who can help us to achieve the scale we need to have a real impact. We’re building on the excellent work done by the FairShares Association and working with them to design a structure that will help us all succeed together. Watch this space!
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. Ooooby Hampshire customers are given the opportunity to add a small donation to their order that will help FirstBite deliver more food to vulnerable people in the Winchester District. Our systems ensure there is limited food left over each week, but any surplus is also donated to FirstBite.
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.
