How to turn your project into one that can generate revenue and operate at scale.

About this Event
In response to the pandemic, SOFEA scaled its Community Larder project from one location to 22 in a matter of weeks.

This webinar will find out how the organisation managed such a feat, and how the lessons learned can help inform and inspire others to scale their own purposeful projects, generate revenue and create more impact.

The key points to be covered include:

Identifying the community need
Creating a revenue generating, sustainable model
Scaling (locally and nationally)
As well as an in-depth case study of SOFEA’s story, this webinar will also allow opportunities to explore each aspect of the model and whether it can be transferred to attendee’s own projects.

Who is it for?

Social enterprises, charities and purposeful businesses looking to generate revenue and increase their impact.


Richard Kennell, Founder & CEO – SOFEA

Richard founded SOFEA in 2014, having run a small business for the previous 8 years. He has a background in local schools as a former Deputy Headteacher. He is a member of a number of local groups including the Charity Leaders’ Forum and the Oxfordshire Skills Board.

SOFEA has a dual social mission – educating disadvantaged young people and providing surplus food to more than 150 not for profit organisations.

It has reacted quickly to the COVID-19 crisis, and is currently distributing 3,000 food parcels a week to vulnerable individuals and families through its network of Community Larders.
