Sunderland Family Arts Network

Sunderland Foodbank

South Tyneside Foodbank

Family Arts Network Sunderland is a collaborative project involving arts and culture organisations across the city, alongside non arts organisations that work with families. They come together as a Network to promote family friendly arts activity and spaces for families in Sunderland, making it a great place for families to have fun and feel safe. They also work closely with the organisation More than Grandparents which is run by and for kinship carers and their families.

The aim is to increase the involvement of local families in creative activities, from craft to music to performing arts, and make the experience of going to a family event in Sunderland a fantastic one!

Family Arts Network Sunderland worked with us on our third cookbook, Secret Dishes From Around the World 3. They commissioned the artist Hannah Rich to work alongside a group of talented creatives aged from 18 months to 11 years old  to create a mixed-media artwork for the project.

Sunderland Foodbank and South Tyneside Foodbank are organisations seeded by the Trussell Trust that provide invaluable services to the local community. They help individuals and families in crisis, through the provision of emergency food supplies. 

We worked with Sunderland Foodbank and South Tyneside Foodbank 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.
