FEEDING CHILDREN IN NEED THIS WINTER We have launched our Winter Appeal
We have launched our 2020 Winter Appeal. With your help we aim to raise over £100,000 to provide 100,000 meals to hungry families across the country in the run up to Christmas. Although now into its third year, the 2020 Winter Appeal is shaping up to be a rather special one, as we have decided to focus this year’s efforts on feeding children in need across the UK.
It is a sad reality that the number of children experiencing the debilitating effects of food poverty is on the rise in this country, and the uncertainly of 2020 has really thrown this into sharp relief for many. Our work with our charity partners has highlighted the real need for wholesome and nutritious food to support these children during the incredibly important early years of growth and development. With this in mind, our ‘Country Bolognese’ was created – a tasty, child-friendly and lead-free venison ready meal which will make up the bulk of distribution this winter.
How you can help
In order to reach our target of providing 100,000 meals to children in need, the Country Food Trust really needs your support! As in previous years, we are asking for donations to help us reach our goal, and these can be made clicking here. A £5 donation will provide 5 meals to hungry children, and so your donation, however big or small, will really make a huge difference to those most in need across the UK.
For the first time, we are also running a Winter Raffle as part of this year’s Winter Appeal, with weekly Raffle Draws promoted across all our social media platforms. Entries are just £5 per ticket, with a whole host of fabulous prizes up for grabs and culminating with the grand prize of a two-night luxury midweek break.
