We’ve been bursting at the seams trying to keep this news a secret for the past few weeks as we’ve been desperate to celebrate. We’re now thrilled to tell you that over 1,000,000 Rose Vouchers have now been spent by families across the UK since the Rose Vouchers for Fruit & Veg Project began in 2014!
“All parents want to be able to give their children the healthiest possible start, and that includes providing healthy, nutritious meals with lots of fruit and veg. That can be a challenge when it’s much cheaper and easier to eat unhealthy food.
We’re thrilled that we’ve been able to help over 5,500 families get access to over £1,000,000 worth of fresh fruit and veg while also supporting local markets and independent retailers.”Jonathan Pauling, CEO
The one-millionth Rose Voucher was spent by a family on North End Road Market in Hammersmith and Fulham.
We’ll be celebrating with the family, the trader that accepted the voucher and other local partners on North End Road Market this Wednesday. We’ll be taking lots of photos so we can share them with you.
We couldn’t have hit this incredible milestone without the help of our supporters and funders over the past seven years.

We want to spend another million pounds on Rose Vouchers for families on low incomes so they can access fresh fruit and veg. To do that we rely on generous supporters like you.
