WHAT IS FEED LONDON
The idea of providing fresh food, recipes and supermarket vouchers during the school holidays, came out of conversations with our community referral partners, the families we already support through our food voucher scheme and the research on the pandemics impact on children’s access to food.
Feed London is Miracles response to this desperate food poverty crisis which is taking place amongst children and young people in London and which has been exacerbated by Covid -19 - specifically during the school holidays. In particular we wanted to support those children living in and around London’s five boroughs with the highest child poverty rates in the country.
Feed London is more than just food aid – we believe in taking a whole family approach – to encourage long-term healthy eating and to introduce children to the fun of cooking – from choosing the food to following a menu to eating what they have cooked – nothing tastes better than food you have cooked yourself.
We have partnered with a food fulfilment company and designed a selection of recipes that families can choose from for an entire week. The menus have been chosen to satisfy all tastes including dietary choices and restrictions – something for everyone.
The whole package is delivered as a Feed London Food Box to every family taking part at the start of the school holidays. It will include all the ingredients needed for a main meal everyday plus recipes for healthy food ideas, a supermarket voucher and much more.
Feed London ensures that 1000’s of London’s children, living in poverty, whose lives have been adversely impacted by the pandemic, will have enough to eat during the school holidays.
It also helps to relieve the financial burden so many families face during school breaks.
