Cornish Pasty Week returns this year with a brand new initiative raising funds to help alleviate food poverty.

Anyone making or selling genuine Cornish pasties is invited to participate by agreeing to donate either a specific amount of money from every Cornish pasty sold during the week, or a fixed lump sum of their choice, to Devon and Cornwall Food Action, a local charity helping to combat food poverty.  

The minimum donation is 1p per Cornish pasty sold.

The initiative is driven by the Cornish Pasty Association, the organisation behind Cornish Pasty Week. Chairman Jason Jobling explained the thinking around the new initiative:

“For generations the Cornish pasty has been an inherent part of our culture and heritage in this part of the world and, with many people facing difficult challenges right now, this feels like an important moment to show how much the Cornish pasty community can do to support those in need.”

Devon and Cornwall Food Action is not a food bank; it is a registered charity that redistributes surplus food.  As such it already works with some of the county’s pasty producers who donate their excess or mis-shaped products.  It relies on a fantastic band of volunteers who do all the work involved, but inevitably there is also a need for cash to cover the overhead costs and this is where the Cornish Pasty Association is hoping to make an impact.

If you make or sell genuine Cornish pasties and would like to be part of this initiative, all you need to do is contact the Cornish Pasty Association, who will send more details.
