Feed A Child Torbay

Friday, 5th June 2020

Purpose

The purpose of our group, until child poverty is reduced substantially or eliminated, is to help fill that hunger gap by providing meals to children during school holidays coordinating with other local projects and organizations.

We are a not-for-profit community-based group; we work with schools to find ways to feed the children during school holidays.
We operate when a school is closed for the holidays.
We raise funds and work with schools, communities and parents to provide meals for pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium & Pupil Premium Plus as well as others with demonstrable need.
We actively encourage community involvement and learning.
We provide meals that are non-perishable. They are prepared, and freshly cooked, by each individual family in their own home.

UPDATE

The government has announced (14 April) that free school meal vouchers will be made available for school holidays - the Easter holiday (retrospectively) and the upcoming half-term break (if needed).

Consequently, Feed A Child will provide schools with meal kits that they can distribute to families in need on an ad-hoc basis during this coronavirus crisis.

We will supply Take Away meal kits containing non-perishable food for each school to dispense to their families.

We would be truly grateful for ANY donation of these non-perishable foods:

We especially need some of the tummy-fillers that form the basis for our meals:

Tins

Tuna

Chopped tomatoes

Soups - especially chunky ones

Meatballs

Chili Con Carne

Peas and other vegetables

Hot Dogs

Tins of new potatoes

Creamy Pasta Bake Sauces

Pasta and sauce packets

500g bags of pasta and spaghetti

500g bags of rice or boil in the bag rice

Tins of fruit

Each meal is accompanied by a tin of fruit for something sweet and nutritious after the meal: peaches, mandarin pieces, pears or pineapple slices for example.
