COVID-19 emergency food programme

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are running an emergency food programme to protect children and their families from hunger. Hot meals and food packages are being made available, through a combination of home deliveries and collection points in the community, to ensure families on low incomes can put breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the table each day. A donation of just £10 can purchase the equivalent of 30 meals for a family at risk of hunger.

What We Do

Hunger has no place in 21st century Britain. We are working with partners as diverse as food banks and local community food organisations, politicians and companies, to make sure it becomes a thing of the past.

We make change at three levels:

1. Establishing and supporting regional partnerships

We work in practical ways to combat hunger in towns, cities and counties around the UK, through our regional Feeding Britain partnerships. These are coalitions of local organisations – charities, community groups, schools, local authorities, social enterprises and others – who come together to take joint action to help eliminate hunger and its root causes in their communities.

Using Feeding Britain’s framework for action, our partners implement projects across four areas: Healthy Holidays, Community Food Hubs, Fuel Banks, and Pathways From Poverty.

2. Building a national network

Our regional partners come together as a national network to share knowledge, exchange good practice, and identify and act on common issues. We meet regularly as a national network, organise exchange visits, and facilitate the sharing of resources and toolkits. Partners share their data and information about emerging issues they are seeing on the ground, so that we can amplify these voices as a joint movement.

3. Gaining systemic change

We know that however hard local projects work to support people in crisis, many of the root causes of hunger need to be addressed through national policy reform and legislation. We take the lessons and evidence from our regional partners about what is causing hunger in their communities, and use this knowledge to seek systemic changes that will alleviate, and ultimately eliminate, hunger from our country. We work closely with a cross-party group of MPs and Peers, as well as ministers and officials, to make sure decision makers are aware of the real situation for people at risk of hunger today, and what can be done to bolster their incomes and living standards. 

By working at these three levels, Feeding Britain is building a movement to alleviate and eliminate hunger. But we can’t do it alone. Find out more about how you can support our work.
