Impact of WRAP during COVID

Over the past couple of weeks our Sustainability Ambassadors have been working diligently over the period in order to improve the experience of Make it Happen for our customers and the wider community, everything from increasing shop space to an entire shop refurbishment.

The increased food storage specfically allowed customers to not only have a wider variety of choice in the food we provide; both fresh and frozen, but also allowed us to store more food within the shop floor iteself. During the tough times, the community had relied on Make it Happen for its unique retail shopping experience as a pillar to the wider community that have been there throughout the COVID pandemic.

WIthin the past couple of months, the increase of food incoming into the shop had increased dramatically over the past 3 months, we've had just under 9 tonnes of food come into the shop, that's just over 3 tonnes of the food coming into the shop each month! Additionally, we redistrubute our surplus food to help the community with an average of 1 tonne of that food going to elderly peoples homes, supported accomidation, churches and others. This goes towards helping the community during the COVID crisis, people in sheltered accomidation or to people and families who are struggling during this difficult time.

Finally, we would like to thank the community who give us this opportunity and we will continue to Make it Happen!
