Venner from the North
EMPOWERING FAMILIES WITH NUTRITIOUS FOOD
We are a social start-up in Finland aiming to tackle the problem of uneven health provision of the society. We offer a completely new, simple and effective way to help a poor family in Finland with nutritious food delivered directly to their door. Anyone can buy grocery bags from our webshop – and have the bag delivered to a Finnish low-income family with children. Every bag in includes healthy Venner recipes, so that families also learn to cook healthy food.
SOLVING A MASSIVE, GLOBAL PROBLEM OF THE POLARIZATION OF WELLBEING - now in Finland
1/10 of Finnish children live in a poor family.
This affects their lives and our society in many ways.
Health inequality in Finland is one of the highest in Europe - surprisingly!
The need for food aid is growing: approx. 1/3 of the customers are families.
Lower income is related to lower life expectancy.
Poverty means less possibilities in health and welfare, and less possibilities
– a downward spiral that is difficult to break.
This is where Venner steps in.
