Here at Babease, we are committed to reducing food wasting and supporting families in need. We have recently partnered with Manchester City Council’s Food Response Team to bring surplus baby food pouches to food kitchens in the Manchester area. 

Babease have donated 25,000 nutritious pouches through the Manchester Food Partnership, which liaises with the community pantries, food kitchens and community centres, including the Coverdale Community Centre and the Bread & Butter group. 

Dee Stirling, Director at Babease said: “We were committed not to waste this highly nutritious food and we are delighted to partner with Coverdale and Bread & Butter to support those in need.”

Babease pouches are organic weaning products, but can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Endorsed by Public Health England, four of our meal pouches make a full adult meal, making these a useful, long-lasting product for food kitchens. 

The pouches being donated are our Babease Mexican Beans Pouches, which contain a tasty recipe packed full of kidney and black beans, brown rice, peppers, onions, tomatoes, sweet potato, and herbs to make a classic Mexican meal. The pouches can be enjoyed as they are, or made into a meal, by using the pouch as a sauce with mince to make chilli con carne or used as a burrito filling. 

Tom Allan of Coverdale Community centre added: “As temperatures drop the need for hot food becomes more important. Therefore, this generous donation is most welcome, and we are very grateful for Babease’s support.”

Babease are committed Our partnership with the Manchester City Council’s Food Response Team is in addition to our work with the City Harvest charity in London.
