The Caring Family Foundation has launched a new campaign Food from the Heart, with the aim to make a difference to the lives of children in the UK living in poverty. Throughout December this new campaign will provide 80,000 meals to children that are going hungry this Christmas and will continue to feed children in need into 2021.

The campaign was born from the desire to play a role in alleviating the disastrous impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the existing growing problem of child food poverty across the UK. The Food from the Heart campaign pledges to feed children with a food delivery program that will have a sustainable impact.

Partnering with FareShare and The Felix Project, The Caring Family Foundation's Food from the Heart campaign will deliver meals across the UK to children most in need of food, found through a nationwide conducted survey by FareShare. Chefs across the hospitality network, have come together to create nutritious meals for children, including Cottage Pie, Vegetarian Lasagne and Vegan Macaroni & Cheese.

Husband and wife, Richard and Patricia Caring, who founded The Caring Family Foundation will utilise the chefs from their hospitality network; The Ivy Collection and Caprice Holdings who have volunteered to produce healthy recipes for the children's meals. My husband and I feel incredibly passionate and proud to be launching the Food from the Heart campaign through the Caring Family Foundation with the support of FareShare and The Felix Project. As a mother of three young children, it is so important that we are doing everything we can to help children who are going hungry and make a positive impact on some of the devastating statistics surrounding child poverty Patricia Caring , Co-Founder, The Caring Family Foundation

In London today, 37% of children are living in poverty, however in 2019 only 16.9% of children attending nursery, primary and secondary state schools, were known to be eligible to claim free school meals. This leaves a significant shortfall, an issue which has recently come to the forefront through the campaign work of Marcus Rashford. To tackle this issue in the capital, the Caring Family Foundation will work on localised projects monthly with The Felix Project, to bring food to children in school projects where they can also socialise and enjoy a safe space to play.
