The one thing the team want you to know
This project has a target community of children from wards with high levels of deprivation or households with identified vulnerabilities. The beneficiaries are relationally known through the churches and the food support given forms part of a larger wrap around provision of assistance. We have reduced the amount of funding requested on learning how many groups have applied and range of excellent and innovative projects being suggested. We recognise the importance of as many people being impacted in as many ways possible during the cost of living crisis. We are always open to collaboration where appropriate. Thank you.
TPT seeks funding for 9 months of our Feast of Fun programme. The benefitting children and families are known to churches and are identified at risk of hunger during the school holidays without this provision. TPT has a 6 year proven track record of church collaboration to provide this programme, which typically offers free, safe and local activities plus meals for attending children. The events not only provide food but also offer a chance for families to connect and positive stories for children to share with their peers when they return to school. This year we are anticipating an even higher take up of the meal provision as more families are seeking assistance during this cost of living crisis. Warm spaces in church buildings this winter alone have already connected many more families with church support. Churches will provide venues, volunteers, activities and signposting so the meals are the only remaining cost. Due to the scale of meals needed and TPT’s existing networks and connections we are seeking just £1.25 per child in order to provide 4,000 healthy meals throughout the school holidays from Feb – October 2023.
Funding needed £5000
What group or groups of people will the project be working with and why?
Feast of Fun is targeted at children in lower income or vulnerable households who are at risk of holiday hunger when out of school. Due to the relational connection with the families the churches will also look out for parents or carers who are also skipping meals to provide food for them in a discreet and dignified way during the event.
What areas will the project be working in? EACH CHURCH WILL ONLY BE SERVING THEIR OWN IMMEDIATE NEIGHBOURHOOD however due to there being multiple churches taking part, there are also multiple neighbourhoods being supported including:
