In partnership with local charities and organisations, Feeding Families fills gaps in food provision, giving emergency support to those not able to access food banks. Its work reaches victims of domestic violence, refugees and asylum seekers, individuals experiencing homelessness, and the elderly. It supports schools with provision for those who fall outside the free meals criteria and those with benefit delays. In the past 12 months it has delivered more than 78k meals to over 25k vulnerable people. Feeding Families is using funding from The Fore to purchase a van and scale up, allowing the organisation to meet demand currently unmet due to a lack of transportation.
