Supporting the Vulnerable in Scotland

Catering, Corporate Social Responsibility, Service Provider News, United Kingdom, Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Compass Group subsidiary ESS has donated 500 food and drink hampers to Social Bite, a charity supporting 5,000 vulnerable individuals in Scotland's main cities during COVID-19.


Boxes were sourced by ESS’ procurement provider, Foodbuy UK & Ireland, and contained a range of essentials and treats; including tea, coffee, water, cereal bars, porridge bars, crisps, and chocolate brownies.


They were delivered by the ESS team on Monday afternoon to Aberdeen Social Bite café, where they will be redistributed through Social Bite’s network to those in need, including homeless shelters, food banks, community groups and children’s charities. The charity operates in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen.

Mark Webster, ESS managing director says: "ESS was really keen to do something to help out locally in Aberdeen where we have an office. We reached out to Social Bite because we truly value the work they do across Scotland, and knew we had the means to help. It’s been great to work with them on this initiative. I would also like to say a massive thank you to our suppliers for their generosity and support."

Jamie Boyd, project manager at Social Bite, adds: "We are absolutely delighted to have the support of the ESS team during this difficult time. We are currently supporting vulnerable people who are still coming to our café in Aberdeen for food everyday as well as through our extended distribution network in the city.


"These Hamper Boxes will go out to people alongside our fresh food packs and will bring a lot of joy to people facing hardship."
