Organic baby food brand, Piccolo, is continuing its’ ongoing commitment to give back through a large donation of 10,000 baby meals and snacks, nationwide – through the charities, Fare Share, The Felix Project and City Harvest.
Having had an already challenging year with Covid-19, many parents are now facing an even more difficult time with Christmas on the horizon. And with foodbanks facing shortages and under pressure, the need for food donations for the vulnerable has never been more crucial.
So Piccolo is working with its three charity partners, City Harvest, Fare Share and The Felix Project, to fight hunger and tackle food wastage.
Through its’ donation, Piccolo is helping parents access food for their children with its food pouches which also double up as snacks for older children, thus 10,000 baby meals and snacks will be distributed to cities across the country, including London, Newcastle and Ipswich.
Piccolo’s Founder, Cat Gazzoli, said: “There’s a huge amount of expectation and pressure around Christmas, and with the difficult year we’ve had, we want to do what we can to take some pressure off families. We want to make feeding your kids more affordable, so that parents have one less thing to worry about.”
Launched in 2016, premium baby food company Piccolo was founded on the belief that it is possible to create organic wholesome goodness from ethically sourced suppliers, a commitment to which comes from Cat Gazzoli’s experience in the food industry.
Their food range draws its’ inspiration from Cat’s Mediterranean roots, as it offers meals with cooking ingredients packed with vegetables, fruit, herbs and spices to make it easy for parents to give their families a nutritious start in life and promote a lifetime of healthy eating.
The range was developed by Co-Founder and Infant Nutritional Expert, Alice Fotheringham – and includes smooth purees suitable from four months, textured meals suitable from seven months, teething snacks, cooking sauces and stock cubes and formula milk – enabling parents to relax and enjoy time together with their growing families.
Piccolo’s range can be found in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Asda, Coop, Boots, Morrisons, Ocado, Whole Foods Market and Planet Organic as well as in many other independent and online retailers, including its own subscription service
Voted in the 30 most philanthropic businesses in the UK, Piccolo is committed to giving 10% of its profits to food education programmes, providing practical support around baby nutrition to parents.
