Your kind donations have enabled The Country Food Trust to provide over 2,000,000 warm and nutritious meals to children and their families over the past months.

The Country Food Trust ask us to note that whilst it’s important that we celebrate this incredible milestone for the charity, and the help they have been able to produce and distribute to those in need, we do not forget what these numbers really signify – the sad truth that more and more people are experiencing the harsh realities of food poverty in the UK.

There is still much work to be done, but with your help we aim to be there for those who, through no fault of their own, will find it difficult to feed themselves and their families in the coming months and years.
