Feeding Families helps those most in need at Christmas by providing hampers full of Christmas goodies so families can enjoy the season free from worry about having a lovely meal. As well as the hundreds of donors who deliver a hamper themselves, we also pack hundreds of boxes at our packing centre which are delivered through partner charities to the most vulnerable who can't enter the matching process.

To do this we need funds to buy food items to top up our donations. This year we have suffered through not being able to run our usual fundraising events so our annual raffle is our one opportunity to fill that gap. Please support us generously by buying tickets for these fantastic prizes and share with your friends.

Feeding Families from Feeding Families

Feeding Families is an exciting grass roots movement of people inspired to donate food hampers to families in food poverty at Christmas. Through one post on social media to find a family to give a hamper to as an act of kindness, over 200 people initially responded to give or receive. This number rapidly grew into a dynamic movement where families connect and come together to achieve an outstanding act of generosity. Many families are offered the lifeline of food and relief from their circumstances at the most pressured time of year by volunteers who freely give their resources to a specific family . This in turn has an uplifting effect on the donors, who feel they have personally changed lives and given hope.
