Because of the coronavirus pandemic, for the first time in our lives a growing number of us are experiencing the fear of food insecurity. This is a fear that is constantly present for all of the people that we feed throughout the UK, not because there is no food, but because they are unable to afford it.
The Country Food Trust was set up to provide food to people in need and has provided nearly 700,000 meals since inception. Today we have managed to secure the meat and production time this April to produce an additional 100,000 pouches of our pheasant curry and casserole. We have also sourced a variety of other frozen meats that we can deliver directly to the charities we support. This will help them cope with the chronic food shortages they are experiencing at the moment.
However, we need funds in order to make this production run happen. So, today we are launching our Coronavirus Appeal to help us provide an additional 250,000 meals to those in the UK who find themselves in significant difficulties.
If you can help us, then please give generously on our Virgin Money Giving page or by donating directly using BACS.
Thank you for helping us make a difference to those who are most vulnerable and in need at this time. To make a donation yourself click here
