Renting and running a warehouse the size that ReadiFood requires to operate costs in the region of £50,000 per annum. We do not have any means of creating an income stream from any sort of sales or social enterprise and thus rely on donations.
Some corporates are able to donate the financial value of the staff times “donated” on volunteer days. If this is something that your company could do that would be excellent.
Others simply donate cash to us towards the cost of the warehouse.
