Barton Peveril and ManVFat Support the Community

Barton Peveril and ManvFat collaborate together to feed the homeless people of Southampton and Eastleigh.

Barton Peveril Sixth Form College and ManvFat Football and Weight Loss (Eastleigh) proudly announce their collaborative effort to feed the homeless people of Southampton and Eastleigh. This joint initiative took place on Wednesday evening and was delivered by the College and the local Football team. It meant that they prepared, cooked and delivered approximately 100 meals to some of the less fortunate individuals.

The hot meals were delivered to nearby locations to ensure those most in need are included during the holiday season. The Hampshire-based College provided the essential facilities and generously contributed some of the ingredients and packaging, demonstrating its commitment to making a difference in the community.

Acknowledging the importance of the venture, the College extended the invitation to its food suppliers, encouraging their active participation in the scheme. This resulted in Bidfood (a national supplier) donating the meat and another local company, Adams, donating the vegetables.

The event will be overseen by former chef and current Business Manager for Catering and Retail, James Lacey, and the football team coach and nutritionist Melanie Bryant, both of whom have invested significant effort to guarantee the success of this initiative.

Vice Principal of Business Services, Chris Loveday, says:

Working with James and Melanie to deliver such an amazing provision to those who need it the most is extremely rewarding. At Barton Peveril, we are keen to support our community and make a difference.

The College Principal, Rob Temple, added:

I am delighted that we could support this initiative and enable good, well prepared food to reach some of those most in need. It’s been wonderful to see individuals and organisations from across the community come together in service of such a good cause.

As part of the broader vision, Barton Peveril aims to replicate this initiative on a termly basis this year, with the goal of transitioning to a monthly schedule in the upcoming year. This commitment reflects the institutions’ dedication to fostering positive change and addressing the immediate needs of the community.
