Its been a great summer for The Feed and local events, find out more about all the fun we have had and what's coming next...
We are delighted to announce that Kettle Foods will be working in partnership with The Feed throughout 2017 and are backers of our Crowdfunding Campaign to raise funds to bring The Feed to the streets of Norwich.
As part of its local community work, Kettle Foods, producer of KETTLE® Chips, is pleased to be supporting The Feed. The company has been based in Norwich since 1988 and making a positive contribution locally has always been an important part of their philosophy. They employ local people, use locally grown potatoes and their business is founded on great tasting, quality snacks using real food ingredients.
Ashley Hicks, Kettle Foods Managing Director says “We feel that there is a great affinity between our business and The Feed and we look forward to working with them to improve local lives through food. In addition to monetary support, we can get involved in lots of other ways for example by offering work experience to their students, providing training sessions with our Chef, Phil, and helping raise awareness of The Feed’s valuable work to a wider audience.”
Barry Allard founder and director of LEAP & The Feed said “It’s fantastic to be partnering with a company so well established as Kettle Foods. Our values intertwine on many levels, both using the best quality ingredients for all our food and being committed to supporting our local community. This partnership will significantly increase the opportunities for people to reach their full potential here in the greater Norfolk area.
This partnership is fantastic news for our client group; Kettle Foods will enable Flourish Participants to gain work experience in their Bistro, learn more about the factory and its day to day running as well as provide guidance on job opportunities that Kettle Foods may have. Recently the whole team enjoyed a visit to the factory (with quite a few crisp lovers we were very excited!) and were fortunate to see the whole process, as well as having a taster session with their Chef, Phil. We were amazed at how much work and precision goes into producing a delicious bag of chips!
The Feed and Kettle Foods will be teaming up together at lots of local events this year including The Royal Norfolk Show on 28th & 29th June . Please keep an eye out for us and make sure you come and say Hi and of course try some delicious Chips and different snacks from The Feed.
