Cargo bike food delivery

 

Stefan who runs yourbikeproject.uk which has now turned into a Saturday foodbank was helping the local community by delivering boxes of food to local families on the Haringey – Hackney border

Just before the video was taken Stefan was asked what he was doing by a passer by who had a 94 year old mum living on her own, we took her details and passed on to the community leaders who will add 1 more to their list

Being so visible and a relatively unusual sight brought many smiles of puzzlement and amazement and its nice to be asked to help out

Outputs

  • 11 large boxes of food delivered by 2 short cargo bike trips
  • 4 miles travelled 1.6 kg of C02 avoided
  • Approx 10 mins per delivery
  • 67 smiles (ok we guessed at that one…..)
  • 11 thank you’s including one emailed in

“Thank you to all of you for making this happen. The first but surely not the only thank you” – local resident

Outcomes 

  • a positive and visible sense of community connectedness
  • a positive sense of health and wellbeing (physical and mental) for Stefan who got some exercise!
  • the opportunity to train local volunteers to use the cargo bike or offer as part of the local community service in the future –
  • an opportunity to showcase do things positively and more sustainably
