THE COUNTRY FOOD TRUST
In 2016, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation estimated that 14 million people in the UK are living in poverty, meaning they must choose between the basic necessities such as food, clothing and heating. The Country Food Trust launched to tackle one element: food.
The Country Food Trust believes that everyone, regardless of his or her economic circumstances, should have access to a balanced and nutritious diet. Their aim is to feed one million people in food poverty in their first five years.
They currently have two products, The Country Casserole, a nutritious and warming pheasant casserole and The Country Curry, a mildly spicy pheasant curry. These meals are donated to those that need them the most. They are donated directly to those in need, to charities who feed people in need, or to other charities that distribute food amongst charities nationwide.
The Country Food Trust has provided over 175,000 game based ready meals to those that need it most. This week alone, the charity donated 1500 kilos of pheasant and partridge meat to charities in Glasgow, Hull and Liverpool. This will provide an additional 15,000 meals in those cities.
THE WINTER APPEAL
This Christmas, the Country Food Trust have launched their Winter Appeal. The aim is provide an additional 75,000 meals to those in need in the run-up to Christmas. Meals will also continue to be provided after Christmas, when temperatures are low, nights long and the charities feeding those in need receive less assistance.
To achieve this, £100,000 needs to be raised. The Country Food Trust needs YOUR help. They are asking everyone who shoots or supports the sport of shooting to donate this Christmas and make a difference, in the hope that this will ensure those most in need will receive nutritious and sustaining meals in the run up to Christmas and beyond.
It couldn’t be quicker or easier to donate to The Country Food Trust Winter Appeal today. Just £20 will feed 14 people in need.
