Pedestrian

Leicester South Foodbank

Pedestrian is a leading arts organisation specialising in music and arts education based in the heart of Leicester’s bustling city centre. Since 1998, they have built a strong track record of delivering high quality creative activity.

They provide education, training and outreach projects for young people at risk, vulnerable adults and communities in Leicester, Leicestershire and across the Midlands. Their participants are often socially excluded, not in education, employment or training (NEET) or experiencing disadvantage.

They believe that with the right levels of support and timely intervention everyone can achieve their goals – they call this ‘Pioneering Potential’.

Creativity is a key part of their lives. At Pedestrian they offer the chance for everyone to explore this through music, dance, photography, street art and many other art-forms regardless of who they are and where they come from.

Pedestrian worked with us on our third cookbook, Secret Dishes From Around the World 3. They commissioned the fantastic artist Andrew Petrouis to create a digital artwork for the project.

Leicester South Foodbank is an organisation seeded by the Trussell Trust that provides invaluable services to the local community. They help individuals and families in crisis, through the provision of emergency food supplies. 

We worked with Leicester South during our 2021 Reverse Advent Calendar Campaign.  The project encouraged people to donate a specific item to their local food bank  every day leading up to Christmas. We created a resource hub on our website with information about food banks across the country and promoted our free donation tracker to help people support their local food bank.
