Registered Charity No: 1162699 (England & Wales).
The Country Food Trust (CFT) is a food production charity, founded in 2015. Our aim is simply to feed as many as possible of the 8.2 million people experiencing food poverty in the UK, with something that is protein-rich, nutritious and delicious.
We use donations to fund the production of a range of tasty ready-meal pouches and the distribution of frozen meat to charities feeding people in need. We use predominately game meat, which would otherwise have gone to waste, with pheasant curry, pheasant casserole and venison Bolognese ready-meals currently available. Our ambient pouches are designed specifically with charities and the end user in mind; they do not need refrigeration and have a one-year shelf-life, so are easy to store. We deliver directly to charities or to redistribution charities like FareShare, with no cost at all to the charities receiving our food.
Since inception the Country Food Trust has supported over 3,500 charities across the UK and delivered over 2 million meals to people experiencing food poverty.
Our work is entirely funded by donations - from individuals, shoots, companies, Trusts and other charitable Organisations and Foundations, and an increasing number of people are leaving the CFT a gift in their Will. For every £1 donated we are able to provide one meal to a person in need.
