Inviting pasty makers to get involved
Cornish Pasty Week returns this year with a brand new initiative raising funds to help alleviate food poverty.
Anyone making or selling genuine Cornish pasties is invited to participate by agreeing to donate either a specific amount of money from every pasty sold during the week, or a fixed lump sum of their choice, to Devon and Cornwall Food Action, a local charity helping to combat food poverty.
For generations the Cornish pasty has been an inherent part of our culture and heritage in this part of the world and, with many people facing difficult challenges right now, this feels like an important moment to show how much the Cornish pasty community can do to support those in need. And what better time to make this happen than in Cornish Pasty Week?
Cornish Pasty week ends on Saint Piran’s Day (the patron saint of Cornwall).
