City Pantry Challenge Helps Feed Brum


City Pantry, founded by Stuart Sunderland in 2014, is Europes leading office food delivery service, linking caterers and restaurants with corporate customers providing food for their employees or clients.



City Pantry Challenge Helps Feed Brum

Office workers rose to the City Pantry Challenge to find the fastest burrito roller in Birmingham– and to show their support for the less fortunate.

A team from student accommodation firm Student Roost wrapped up the competition with an award-winning performance.

And they received a special trophy and two weeks of free breakfasts for themselves and their colleagues as a result of their speedy culinary efforts.

Leading office food delivery company City Pantry partnered with restaurant brand Chilango to present the challenge, taken up by workers from across Birmingham city centre. The challenge was to “Feed the team – feed the city”.

City Pantry also partnered with local homeless charity Let’s Feed Brum to run the lunchtime event. For many years the organisation has supported people throughout Birmingham in poverty and facing homelessness.

As a result City Pantry and Chilango are now donating 20 meals every week for one year to help feed Birmingham’s less fortunate and homeless.

Teams were invited to see how many burritos they could roll in one minute. It proved to be a close run thing, with Student Roost triumphing under the expert eye of one of Chilango’s expert Colmore Row chefs.

The Student Roost team were delighted, with team member Parveen Pal saying: “We were so pleased to be involved. It was so much fun and it is great that this helps Let’s Feed Brum.”

Jay Patterson, senior sales manager at City Pantry, who handed over the trophy to the winning team, said. “The City Pantry Challenge has been a lot of fun and we’ve also been able to support a well-deserving local charity that does a lot of good work in Birmingham. Our thanks to everyone involved.”

Tara Tomes, co-founder and trustee of Let’s Feed Brum, which supports and signposts services to the city’s rough sleepers, said: “Let’s Feed Brum’s success is built on the kindness and support of local business, and we’re so delighted that City Pantry and Chilango have chosen to work alongside us.

“Each night, our volunteers serve up hot food and supplies – and help signpost relevant services – to people sleeping rough in the city.

“We can see anywhere between 100-200 people a night, from our base at Old Square and our walking teams, and being a 100 per cent volunteer organisation means that donations like this are crucial to us being able to help those who need it.

"A huge ‘thank you’ to everyone involved in the launch of what we hope is going to be an amazing relationship!”

Enya Gill, senior marketing manager at Chilango, added: “We are here to build our partnership with City Pantry in a fun way.

"The challenge’s tag line is ‘feed the team – feed the city’ and it is great that we can help a local charity. We’re so delighted with the way the event has come together.”
