Regenerate is a local charity that works with young people and families living in Roehampton and estates across London.
It is a charity that helps transform lives and communities from inside and out, that we have been working with since 2014 to stock sandwiches in The Hive from the charity's enterprise The Feel Good Bakery.
The Feel Good Bakery is a response to the need to provide support and employment to young people who have been caught up in negative situations and seeks to train, coach and employ them as they turn their backs on gang life and crime.
The Feel Good Bakery partners with grassroots organisations that do amazing work with children living in extreme poverty around the world.
When you buy a sandwich, you are personally buying a meal for one of these children. Since its inception, The Hive Cafè has helped provide over 100,000 meals to children living in extreme poverty.
More recently, Regenerate have partnered with Heathmere Primary School and Rackets Cubed to help respond to the Covid-19 pandemic by setting up and coordinating a weekly Community Box scheme.
The Roehampton Community Box is distributed to more than 200 local families in Roehampton and Putney.
The Growhampton team donate fresh, nutritional produce to the scheme. produce that is grown here on-campus to help make a difference in reaching a large community of lower-income households in the surrounding area.
So far, Growhampton have donated over 300KG of produce to the Roehampton Community Box scheme.
