To date we have delivered more than 1,000,000 meals and continuing.

Feeding Communities started in Gloucestershire with Rendcomb College delivering meals to local community members and supplying dishes to charities such as the Grace Network who then distributed these meals to those in need. We expanded all over the country, from Scotland to Devon and many in between.

We then moved internationally with clients in Portugal and Malta joining Feeding Communities. Meals were delivered to the homeless in the community as well as hospitals and charities.

Feeding Communities has delivered meals to over twenty charities and organisations and over twenty NHS hospitals and ambulance services.

“We believe that no-one should be without nutritious food”

Grace Network and the Long Table were aiming to feed 5,000 people in need over the duration of the Covid-19 crisis with the help of Feeding Communities – a number that was met and exceeded. We provided meals to vulnerable, at risk people, the food insecure including food banks, and elderly in need.

Meals provided to the Grace Network were prepared at: Rendcomb College, Sibford School and Kings School Gloucester who we thank for their great support.

Feeding Communities – The Future

Food poverty does not stop with the end of the lockdown period and neither does Feeding Communities. We have developed initiative that allow us to keep Feeding Communities going so we can help as many people as possible. We are currently piloting a new initiative in schools to get students involved in helping their local communities.

You can stay up to date on what we are up to through this page or through our social media pages.

We are determined to develop and grow the reach of Feeding Communities. A new programme has been created in which students work alongside chefs and trainers to develop their own knowledge of cooking healthy meals. Once competent, the students continue creating dishes that are specifically designed to meet the requirement of the Feeding Communities programme and so provide meals to charitable causes in their local communities.

Feeding Communities – Task Force

We are now launching the Feeding Communities Task Force; a coalition of likeminded partners with one goal to eradicate food poverty.


As long as food poverty exists, we will continue to provide free meals to all who need them. It doesn’t take much to change a life and it starts with a meal. Get in touch today to see how you can make a difference.
