Indie Acts of Kindness: Say “Thank you” with Indie Bay

It’s been 11 months since 2020 began, but it’s still been the longest year we can remember.

Now more than ever, we need to find those unexpected moments of joy.
Now more than ever, we must be grateful to those working tirelessly to help us all through.
This holiday season and beyond, let’s spread some smiles with acts of kindness.
-Dafna, Indie Bay Founder

Here at Indie Bay, we recognise that everyone is struggling in one way or another right now.
We also recognise that there are people up and down the country going above and beyond to keep us all afloat, and we want to show them some appreciation!

Some of our team members have kids, and those kids are at school. They’re at school, and learning from some amazing teachers who have done everything they can to support everyone’s kids online, offline, during lockdown and beyond. We are infinitely grateful for our teachers. They are rockstars, and the rocks that keep families working – and sane – throughout these wild and unpredictable times.
We think that’s pretty incredible, so we’re doing what we can to recognise the astounding work of teachers across the UK.

If we could, we’d pay them all millions. Really. They deserve it! Unfortunately we don’t bottomless piles of cash. We do, however, have something else…
Whilst we might not be experts when it comes to vaccines and whatnot, we are experts when it comes to pretzels.
So we’ll help you say “thank you” to some of the amazing teachers in your life, by dishing out some oven baked Snacks with Benefits.
We welcome you to nominate the incredible teachers in your lives, your kids’ lives, your friends lives’, that have put in the graft, gone the extra mile, and kept everyone’s kids engaged, entertained and educated through 2020. Whatever the subject, wherever the school, we know that these awesome people deserve a great big “thank you” and we want to help you say it.

Send your nominations to thankyou@indiebaysnacks.com, telling us who you want to say thank you to, and explaining exactly why you want to say it. We promise to read every single email, and ship out some crunchy goodness to the people nominated in the emails we love.

From December onwards, we’ll be selecting a handful of teachers each month to ship out a great big box full of oven baked goodnesss to show how much we all care.
Like we said, when it comes to pretzels, we know what we’re doing, and we know that spreading the Indie Bay joy like this will help put a smile on anyone’s face.

Taste of London 2019

This June we were back in Regent’s Park for our second year at Taste of London.

It was another jam-packed foodie fest over 5 brilliant summer days.

 

This year we brought our Indie world to the masses with our very own Indie Bay pergola, complete with beachy backdrop and deckchairs (cool, huh?).

It proved a rather popular space to sit down, hang out and try all the goods on offer at the festival.

We also saw the return of our ever popular Indie Cornhole. Participants had the chance to nab themselves a few free packets of indie bay with a well-aimed throw.

It was so great to say hello to you all in real life. We even bumped into one of our favourite Indies, Yotam Ottolenghi!

All in all, it was a hugely successful event. We managed to hand out a whopping 100,000 pretzel bites. In fact, we handed out so many we had to nip back to Indie HQ in Notting Hill to grab a load more. If you want to see what all the fuss was about then have a look at our online shop. Thank you to everyone that came down. We’ll see you again at Taste of London 2020!

Happy Snacking,

Team Indie Bay.
