Food 4 Macc are volunteers who come together to promote gardening in the home and within the local community, as well as raising awareness of environmental issues. They have helped All Hallows Catholic College develop their garden project and worked with our students, sharing their expertise. They believe in sustainability and growing local produce. Food 4 Macc were nominated for the Silk FM Social Enterprise of the Year by All Hallows and were eventual winners.

In March 2011, Abercrombie A said about Food4Macc
I am a member of several groups and organisations in local area but F4M is truly special. For a group which has been going such a relatively short period it has achieved so much. The people who had the vision to begin the group have worked so hard in many ways and through their energy and tireless endeavour have inspired many others. Despite a huge amount of work at the computer and telephone; contacting media to publicise the aims of F4M,giving talks,stalls at various events; preparing and planting community gardens and supporting others in a practical way, this group remains energetic,optimistic,inspirational,welcoming,supportive and, best of all FUN!

This is a real grass roots organisation, one that is driven by the shared enthusiasm of a bunch of people that want to see local Macc people grow and eat more locally produced food. Within a few months of being involved, I know 20 or 30 people I didn't know before and together we are helping people reconnect with where their food comes from. It's a great organisation to be involved in.
