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 organisations.
||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.|

Our wonderful volunteers are very active...
The ongoing work for FACT volunteers includes:
||liaising with schools|
We also have work around the times when we are packing meals:
||organizing the pack and delivery|
When we hold events - Easter, Christmas, and perhaps an August event -- there is always work to be done!
Please note that recipe development is challenging because of the restrictions:
||Cost no more than £2 to feed a family of four, although sometimes we go over a little bit. (We use the least expensive store brands most of the time).|
||Ingredients all have long shelf life - usually tins and dried food such as pasta and rice.|
||Cooking instructions for preparing the meal on a hob or hotplate and also for preparing the meal in a microwave.|
||Not assuming that there is a larder with oil, seasonings, sauces, etc., although we could add small amounts of sauces (ketchup, brown sauce, etc.) if we buy individual portion packs from Bookers and include a few of these (perhaps 4) as part of the recipe.|

We are immensely grateful for all those kind and generous people who volunteer their time and expertise to help us to help Torbay's hungry children.
The number of organisations that are supporting us financially has grown steadily over the years. In response to requests to highlight your support for us on your website, we are pleased to make available a "Valued Partner" logo.
In order to maintain consistent branding we ask the following:
1. Your organisation obtains written (via email) permission to use the logo on your website.
2. You only use the logo in the manner that we have agreed with you. Should you deviate from these guidelines, we may ask you to modify your use, or even to stop, using the logo.
3. You do not modify the logo (such as changing colours, or altering its square format, for example).
4. You do not imply a relationship with Feed A Child Torbay other than that previously agreed with you.
You may right-click and save the following logo. It's a PNG file, so will show transparently the background of the webpage on which it is displayed. The image size is 300px x 300px but you may resize it smaller if you wish.
If you have any other requirements (such as print-quality versions of our Valued Partner logo) please contact us. We are very happy to assist you.
We would be grateful for the logo to provide a link to "https://feedachildtorbay.org.uk".
