08 Nov What Milly Does Best – celebrating a run of award success; now she needs YOUR help!
Following the formation of No Fuss Meals for Busy Parents as a Community Interest Company (CIC) in June, founder Milly Fyfe has received a number of accolades for her work in the business, community and farming sector. She now needs your help to grow…
In the last month, founder of No Fuss Meals for Busy Parents CIC Milly Fyfe has been recognised as Northamptonshire’s business person of the year by Northamptonshire Business Network and best new start up company, also a Silver Award winner at the Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards in the ‘food hero’ category.
What’s more is that she has also gained recognition as a ‘Grow, Cook, Eat Ambassador’ and received an Associateship from the Council for Awards of the Royal Agricultural Societies with her work connecting consumers with UK farming and food production.
The CIC provides consumers with a connection between food produced in the UK and how to make meals from scratch. Broken down into three area which include: tasty recipe ideas using seasonal produce that the whole family can enjoy, easy to follow recipes with a focus on simple ingredients that an average family can access; shining a spotlight on UK farmers and food producers, highlighting their backstory, what they produce, where you can purchase and what you can do with the ingredients.
Content is shared on a food blog, (www.nofussmealsforbusyparents.com ) on social media (Facebook and Instagram) and via a podcast called The Countryside Kitchen Meets (available on all major streaming platforms)
The long-term impact of the social enterprise is that children will grow up eating a variety of home cooked meals and less of a reliance on highly processed meals. Informed choices and cooking habits will change as parental knowledge will have been enhanced and this will instil long term benefits to the next generation of young adults.
Milly is now asking for your help.
As a not for profit, the CIC has been successful in securing grant funding to help with specific projects in the community. However this has taken an enormous amount of time to secure and deliver, taking focus away from creating engaging content and interviews, and has been difficult to find the support for core funding, operating costs as well as time to build relationship for corporate sponsorship and stakeholder engagement.

- Follow No Fuss Meals for Busy Parents on Facebook or Instagram where you’ll be able to access video tutorials on how to make tasty meals from scratch using seasonal ingredients, watch the new ‘hero video’ which explains more about the CIC or find out more about food grown and produced in the UK.
