By kind permission of the Cowdray Estate, The Country Food Trust invited local councillors, community foundation representatives, sporting estates and suppliers to the game industry to participate in a session on how The Country Food Trust could expand its delivery of wonderfully nutritious game based meals to those in need in East and West Sussex.

The purpose was to launch a project running under the stewardship of our County Ambassadors to coordinate the supply of game meat (from Estates, syndicate shoots of all sizes, and local game dealers) with the developing demand from local charities (such as homeless shelters, food banks and food kitchens as well as major charitable distributors) and to discuss effective ways to address and resolve the logistical challenges involved.

This proved invaluable and since then we have delivered over 16,000 meals to people in need in Sussex.
