Feeding Families mobilises communities to look after each other. We inspire ordinary people to do extraordinary things in meeting the needs of those around them who are struggling through difficult financial times. We create a culture of kindness to meet food poverty and aim to make sure that no family needs to go without at crisis points in the year. By connecting families together we improve wellbeing for both donors and recipients and reach families who are not able to access other services such as food banks.
We operate by matching donor and recipient families who make and deliver hampers directly. We also accept food donations from businesses and individuals which we pack in local centres and distribute directly to families or through local charities who work with the most vulnerable in the community.
In 2020 we are looking to expand our work and make it more sustainable by: training every volunteer online in basic GDPR, safeguarding and health and safety. We will build a stronger support foundation which will enable us to offer the best to families and volunteers. We will then be able to add more locations to our packing and distribution area and increase holiday hunger meals and provision of Christmas hampers.
