Community Box



Rackets Cubed’s programmes were understandably affected by the Covid Pandemic, lockdowns and school closures.


Over 135,000 Community Boxes Delivered That’s over 1.7 million meals!

We launched the Roehampton Community Box in March 2020 in response to Covid, with the idea of helping local families in primary schools in Roehampton where we were already delivering our core programme.

Rackets Cubed was aware that some families were already suffering with food insecurity. We reached out to the local families to gauge interest and immediately had 60 families asking for help within a week. We now support over 200 families within the Roehampton area.


In Roehampton we have moved to a social supermarket model where we allow the families to select their own products instead of being handed a ready-made box.  This has proved to be very popular with the families.

We have copied our original box model in our partner schools throughout the UK and run programmes in Birmingham, Manchester, Walsall, Greater London, and Peterborough.

All the programmes operate very much at the heart of their local communities, and we complement that with local food providers (e.g. FareShare, Felix Project, City Harvest and food banks), local businesses (e.g. the Fruit Stall), local charities (Regenerate, Nurture a child and The Hygiene Bank), and other local institutions and faith groups support.

We are proud to have already provided over 135,000 Community Boxes nationwide.


That’s over 1,700,000 meals from 18 hub sites.

“I was really struggling to cope before the food boxes and it has made a massive difference.”

Charlie, my youngest loves to come on Wednesdays to help pack up the food and all my children have learnt about the importance of kindness through the community hub.


The food boxes help so much and each week there may be something new.  We are getting exposed to different foods that we would not buy ourselves.  It has been so important. 


The food boxes had been very helpful especially since lock down when life was uncomfortable.  Life is better when you can feed your children. 


It’s amazing, it is such a huge help for the family.  I really appreciate it especially during the pandemic and to know that we are surrounded by great people.  I am so thankful.  My kids are so happy and look forward to Wednesdays. 


I was scared before I came to the hub, but meeting people in a similar situation has really helped me. Before I was in despair, with two kids and being a single parent I didn’t know if I could cope.  Having the food boxes was such a relief especially to see toiletries. I can only make my money stretch so far. 


Getting involved with the hub as been so rewarding, not only is it a great cause that helps provide food for the masses but its also a great opportunity for me to work amongst great people and give back to the community that has helped me first hand during these unprecedented times.  It gives me great pleasure to see the positive effect it has on the families.
