Over the last few months, we, like the rest of the world, have been shocked and saddened by the breakout of the war in Ukraine and the subsequent humanitarian crisis.
We are against war and support those most heavily affected by it - the Ukrainian people.
Since, we have been working in the background to support a number of amazing charities on the ground in both Ukraine and its surrounding borders to help feed the millions of people who have been forced to flee their homes and seek refuge. The beauty of our portable pizza oven, Roccbox, is that it can be used anywhere, and it’s truly been an honour to be able to support these charities during this challenging time.
As this crisis continues, today, we wanted to announce a couple of additional initiatives we will be introducing this month to continue to show our support;
We are forever inspired by the power cooking holds in uniting people and will continue to support and spread awareness of the incredible efforts of the individuals and charities at the borders wherever able. Please see below more information on some of these charities/initiatives close to our hearts and details on how you can get involved.
Peace & love,
Siobhan’s Trust is a small Scottish Charity created in 2020 to commemorate Siobhan Dundee and is run solely by volunteers.
A trustee of the charity, David, has substantial experience organising events and catering for large groups so aided by Siobhan’s Trust recent purchase of a mobile pizza oven, he decided to assemble a convoy of two vehicles plus trailers to bring donations of food and clothing to refugees at the Poland - Ukraine border. They now cook hot meals - pizza, burgers and pasta - for thousands of refugees a day and this week are doubling their convoy with two additional vans to expand their efforts on the ground.
All donations are currently going towards ingredients and supplies to stock their catering vans and soup kitchens which are feeding thousands every day, snacks, hygiene products, clothing, animal food and other essentials for refugees crossing the border.
In response to the dire situation in Ukraine, three powerhouses in food, Olia Hercules, Alissa Timoshkina and Clerkenwell Boy, launched the initiative to help raise awareness of the situation, raise vital funds for people impacted and create a platform for people to share and celebrate Ukrainian culture and cuisine. Whether you’re a home cook or part of the hospitality industry there’s plenty of ways to get involved. So far, the initiative has raised over £1million for UNICEF. All proceeds will be directed to their charity partners working directly on the ground.
