Every year, around 1.6bn tonnes of food goes to waste. This equates to around a third of all food produced on the planet. And yet, around 10% of humans on the planet live a life of chronic malnourishment. In the UK 4.7 million people live in food insecure homes and in Pakistan more than 20% of the population go hungry. We believe that in a world of such abundance, it’s crazy to see so many people go without. We want to change that.
The rising effects of poverty cause many to live without access to regular food sources. Instead, they must hope their next meals arrive soon. In children, this causes malnutrition and nutrient deficiency, which stunts growth and neurological development. This has become such a problem that nearly 1/4 worldwide suffer permanent damage due to poor nutrition.
Our Food & Harvest Project was created to help those struggling in homes with little to no food. To achieve this, we donate food packs to families most in need. We’re also growing our own produce to send to families that need it most. Unfortunately, many of these families have been overlooked by their government. With little support and income, they often have no way of providing for themselves. Our food packs ensure they always have another meal to look forward to. With more families falling into the poverty line, supporting these communities has never been more important.
With the help of people like yourself, we believe that together, we can make a real change in these people’s lives. By providing them with regular meals, we can help them build a stable lifestyle in which regular hunger isn’t a problem. After all, nobody should ever have to go hungry.
