Transforming Lives with Surplus Food: New Ethos Nottingham’s Remarkable Impact Report


In the heart of Nottingham, there is a transformative force making waves in community empowerment and sustainability. We're talking about New Ethos Nottingham Housing, a committed and vibrant organisation devoted to aiding those in need and nurturing the environment. The recent impact report we received from Neighbourly, our esteemed partner, tells a compelling story of positive change and tangible results. It’s not just numbers; it’s about the lives touched, the community lifted, and the environment preserved.


Bridging the Gap with Surplus Food Donations

At the heart of New Ethos Nottingham Housing’s mission is the collaboration with Neighbourly, the brilliant organisation connecting us with supermarkets offering surplus food donations. Neighbourly is more than a facilitator; it's a catalyst for change, enabling us to convert surplus food that might have ended up in landfill into nourishing meals for those in need.




Breaking Down the Impact

According to the latest impact report:

  • 292 Donations Received: A testament to the generous and continual support from various branches, including significant contributions from the Lidl Community Fund.

  • 12,948 Meals Provided: That’s nearly 13,000 instances where someone went to bed with a full stomach, thanks to New Ethos and its partners.

  • Weight 5,438 kg: The total weight of food items that have been redirected from waste and into welcoming homes.

  • CO2e 17,402 kgs Saved: A significant contribution towards combating climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

A Cycle of Giving and Receiving

Every donation we receive at New Ethos Nottingham is more than just a statistic. It’s a testament to the cycle of giving and receiving that sustains our community. These food donations become nutritious meals for families, supporting not only physical health but also mental and emotional well-being. Through the Lidl Community Fund and Neighbourly, we are turning potential waste into wellness, every single day.


The Domino Effect of Positive Impact

This report illuminates how our efforts, combined with those of our partners like Neighbourly and Lidl, ripple through the community. We are not just feeding the hungry; we are nourishing souls, empowering individuals, and fostering a sustainable future. Together, we are creating a new ethos – one that values collaboration, community, and compassion above all else.


More Than Just Numbers

These aren't just numbers; they are a narrative of positive transformation. The collaboration between New Ethos Nottingham Housing, Neighbourly, and partnering supermarkets, exemplifies what we can achieve when we unite for the greater good.

At New Ethos Nottingham, we are continuously inspired by this impact and are deeply committed to building on this legacy. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Neighbourly, the supermarkets, and most importantly, to our community, who are the real heroes of this impactful story.
