In January, The Country Food Trust hosted a drinks party at James Purdey and Son in recognition of having delivered half a million meals to people in food poverty. They were able to thank some of the many people who have played such an important part in supporting them. The Country Food Trust would like to thank James Purdey and Son, Knight Frank, Pinkster and Alvarium who kindly sponsored the whole event so there was no cost to the charity.
Their CEO Tim Woodward and Trustees Chris Horne thanked those present and spoke about the future aims of The Country Food Trust. They also described how the charities we support by encouraging those in need through the door with our food, have also been able to help them with medical, financial and accommodation advice.
Since that evening, they have continued to distribute food and have now passed the 590,000 meal mark. The charity has used over 55 tonnes of game meat to create these meals and has delivered to over 1,800 charities across the UK and Northern Ireland. Many of the charities helped have been due to their fantastic partnerships with distribution charities like FareShare, UK Harvest, City Harvest, The Felix Project and HIS Church.
