The Problem

‘There are not enough services in the city to support people to develop food independence.’

A report commissioned by our partner charity, Caring in Bristol and in Hope

Facts and figures

16-25

16-26 is such a young, future-defining age, we believe we should be nurturing and empowering young victims of domestic abuse, asylum seekers, care leavers and youth recovering from homelessness

1,318

In Bristol alone, 1,318 under 25s are at risk of homelessness. 3x more than in 2019

6,633

Between 2020 & 2021 over 6,633 young people in Bristol suffered from severe to moderate food insecurity.

Our solution

Feeding them great food with our aMAZIng Meal Kits

Building connections with Bristol’s food scene for employment opportunities

Hosting aMAZIng events to create a sense of togetherness

We focus on creating long term change

Increasing access to nutrious, sustainable and fresh food

Building confidence and food independence with recipes by our very own...chefs

Including them in Bristol's food scene through events and employment opportunities through our network of Bristol's restauranteurs

How you can help The MAZI Project

mazi-sonny

Give-A-Box

Together with Sonny Stores, Give-A-Box is a special initiative delivering seasonal recipe boxes curated by some of Bristol’s best chefs, to your door. Every time you buy a box another will be donated to a disadvantaged young person in Bristol.

General public

Whether it’s organising a fundraiser, volunteering to help pack and deliver our boxes or just wanting to shout about us, we want to hear from you.

Businesses

We are constantly looking to work with local businesses and restaurants to expand our network, organise fundraisers and raise awareness (and money…) to empower and nourish Bristol’s disadvantaged young people.
