Thank you to everyone who has helped our Coronavirus Appeal which raised over £350,000 – allowing us to order 558,000 meals (61 tonnes of food) for distribution to people in need and NHS frontline workers in just two months.
The Trussell Trust has reported an 81% increase in food bank use and The Salvation Army said it saw a 63% average increase in households receiving food parcels and warned that the coronavirus pandemic had pushed the UK to a “poverty tipping point”.
We are now working with County Councils and Community Foundations, FareShare and Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to distribute even more food in the coming months around the United Kingdom.
The Country Food Trust is a charity founded in 2015 which produces food and donates it to people in need. We have already provided over one million meals to people in need.
If you would like to help us provide high quality protein food to people in need please consider becoming a key supporter or an accredited shoot.
Tim Maddams is a chef, food writer & cookery teacher who is responsible for making our food delicious, nutritious & warming and advises us on all aspects of our production.”
