World Hunger Day on May 28th, is an initiative that was created in 2011 by The Hunger Project, a non-profit organisation that works towards ending world hunger.
The aim of World Hunger Day, is to “raise awareness to the more than 820 million people living in chronic hunger”. A call as global citizens, to highlight sustainable solutions to world hunger and declare our own role in making a hunger-free planet our reality.
We hold on to the vision at RealFoodSource of “nutritional equity for a well nourished world”.
Our main focus day to day, is to keep the prices of our wholefoods as low as possible, so cupboards can be filled with great nutrition for less.
We stock products in various pack sizes, but our Community Packs offer the best value for money in a size for sharing within a household or amongst friends or neighbours.
For even more fantastic savings, keep checking our promotions section for all products currently on promotion on clearance sale!
We believe we have lowest UK online prices!
Let us know if you can put four or more different items in your basket and find cheaper elsewhere online in the UK (same size packs and including shipping), and we will lower the products prices if possible.
We often donate any surplus to charity. You can read more about our 200kg donation to local Edinburgh Charity; ‘Empty Kitchens Full Hearts’ who turn surplus food into healthy meals for those who need them. Since the beginning of the pandemic they’ve provided well over a million meals free of charge.
Findings by The Food Foundation even show that food banks are reporting that the rise in energy costs are so prohibitive for some people they request that charity food parcels contain no food that has to be cooked using a cooker or that needs to be stored in a fridge or freezer. (See source)
Almost all our foods are pantry friendly and don’t require cooking to be consumed, providing quick and healthy nutrition whether eaten by the handful or incorporated into a hot or cold recipe.
On a final note, in honour of the new Top Gun movie which we are excited to watch, we hope you can see that we are very passionate about our mission!
Not only do we feel the need for speed, but…
