Breaking Bread's new ready-meal service, with dishes created by some of the city’s top restaurateurs, aims to help the city’s most vulnerable
Breaking Bread At Home has been created by The Pony & Trap, Bianchis and Team Love. Each meal is a portion for two and every meal bought funds a meal for a Bristolian facing food vulnerability.
Josh Eggleton and Ben Harvey have devised a menu of warming winter dishes of Salt & Malt Fish Pie, Bianchis Smoked Mozzarella & Mushroom Lasagne and The Pony & Trap Cottage Pie. Breaking Bread’s dishes are created from fresh seasonal ingredients, prepped and assembled by the restaurant’s respective teams, while their restaurants are closed.
… we came up with a way that Bristolians can all play a part in feeding the city, while also feeding themselves – Josh Eggleton, co-founder
First orders will be live from Friday 5 February, closing the following Wednesday for collection on Friday 12 February, with weekly collections each Friday from Pasta Loco, Salt & Malt (Wapping Wharf), Bianchis and Bristol Beer Factory (Southville).
Tackling food poverty
Josh Eggleton, project co-founder, explains: “We’re still all in a really difficult situation right now, but we can’t ignore the fact that food poverty and food vulnerability need to be tackled. With funding becoming scarce, we came up with a way that Bristolians can all play a part in feeding the city, while also feeding themselves.
“Many of the city’s food businesses have come together to support the city’s homeless and those unable to feed themselves and their families during this crisis, but we need to make it more sustainable for the future, fostering the creation of a circular economy around our food industry. This collaboration brings restaurant quality ready meals to the city, and every one will help us to make meals for those in need.”
Breaking Bread 2021
Breaking Bread itself will return to The Downs in Spring 2021. The unique hospitality project was launched in direct response to the Covid-19 crisis and the difficulties it caused for the hospitality industry, providing much needed jobs for both hospitality and events professionals in the city, as well as support for the hospitality industry supply chain.
