The Country Food Trust Initiative (CFTI)
AN INTRODUCTION TO THE COUNTRY FOOD TRUST INITIATIVE
Since we started this charity, our supporters have asked us if we can take in their birds and use them to feed to people in need. Unfortunately this does not work as the costs of collection and distribution are simply too high and traceability becomes an issue. However using the Country Food Trust Initiative (CFTI) we hope to unite local shoots, game dealers and charities to use game to feed people more efficiently and in local areas.
We are asking estates to donate some or all of their birds to their local game dealer with a £1 per bird donation paid to the CFT. The game dealer will then process the birds into meat and the CFT will use the £1 per bird donation to buy that meat and supply it to local charities. The CFT will manage and support the relationship between the shooting estate, game dealer and the charities feeding people in need. We are also creating a recipe book with recipes from famous chefs for the charities and will be working with local media to publicise the number of meals created for people in need in each location
We carried out a successful trial in 2017/18 and fed over 4,000 people and now we are expanding in 2018/19. The CFTI is run with the incredible help and backing of the GunsOnPegs team, who have donated their time and technology for free so if you would like to participate and find out more then please let us know by contacting The GunsOnPegs Team
