Firstly The Scandinavian Kitchen team have linked up with a charity called Magic Breakfast. The charity works with schools in deprived areas to identify children who are in need of a good breakfast before the school day starts. Sadly 1 in 3 children in England go to school with an empty stomach.
They provide porridge, bagels, toast and cereal. It gives the children the best possible start to the day. For every bowl of porridge bought at the Scandi Kitchen they will donate a breakfast to children in need via the charity.

The other project that brought a smile to my face was the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm. Set high up on the roof of an office building in New York, is an organic garden, founded a few years ago, it now supplies nearby restaurants with all their vegetables. They simply bicycle over their orders. The public can shop there too and they also have educational and volunteer programmes. A real community success story. Everyone working together, just how I like it. If you click on the link you can watch a very sweet little film all about it.
I like to think the Green Giant might help out at weekends.
