Alexandra Rose Charity – The Fruit & Veg Project

Alexandra Rose Charity – The Fruit & Veg Project

The Alexandra Rose Charity is offering ‘The Rose Vouchers’ for its Fruit & Veg Project, a project which helps low income families buy fresh fruit and vegetables and supports them to give their children the healthiest possible start.

A family receives £3 of Rose Vouchers for each child, every week, or £6 if the child is under one years old. The charity works with some fantastic market traders in London, Liverpool and Barnsley, where the vouchers can be redeemed for a great selection of fruit and veg. By working with the market traders, the project also benefits local markets, helping to ensure economic vibrancy through encouraging regular trade, and so maintaining local markets as important sources of healthy low-cost food.

To support families on the Rose Voucher scheme to engage with existing activities focused on health and wellbeing in their local area, distribution of the Rose Vouchers is based at children’s centres. Staff at the children’s centres recruit those families which stand to benefit most from the vouchers, due to of their susceptibility to food poverty, dietary related health issues or other risk factors.

To be eligible for Rose Vouchers families should meet the criteria for the Healthy Start voucher scheme for pregnant women and families in receipt of benefits
