National Recognition for Be Enriched
On 7 November 2023, we were delighted to receive the British Nutrition Foundation’s (BNF) esteemed Drummond Community Award.
This accolade acknowledged Be Enriched’s remarkable endeavours in addressing the issue of healthier eating among vulnerable groups in the UK through delivery of Community Canteens, Kids Clubs and the Food Bus.
Speaking about the award, Bridget Benelam, Nutrition Communications Manager, at BNF, said: “At a time when it’s so difficult for many people to afford a healthy diet, Be Enriched provide nutritious meals from food that would otherwise be wasted to people at risk of social isolation. We were delighted to select Be Enriched as the winner of the BNF Drummond Community Award, recognising the amazing work they are doing for vulnerable people in the community.”
