The Thomas Franks Foundation created Feeding Communities back in March 2020, an initiative set up to help provide healthy and nutritious meals to those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the brilliant support of Thomas Franks’ clients, suppliers, and donors, to date we have provided around 500,000 meals to over 100 charities across the UK.

During last year, food poverty across the UK has become very apparent and therefore, Feeding Communities has become a long-term project for us. In order to continue our work and provide meals to those who need them, we need your help. We rely solely on your donations, with 100% of the money we receive being used to prepare and deliver healthy nutritious meals and this is where ‘Miles for Meals’ comes in.

Miles for Meals is a virtual 3-, 5- or 10-mile event being held from 29th May to 6th June inclusive. Thomas Franks’ staff, families, friends, clients and suppliers of all ages and abilities are invited to kindly donate their time and energy to help achieve our target of £10,000 and fund a further 5,000 meals for those who need them across the UK.
