The Caring Family Foundation has launched a new campaign ‘Food from the Heart’


“Richard Caring, Executive Chairman for The Ivy Collection and Caprice Holdings, Rachel Ledwith, Development Manager at FareShare and Mark Curtain CEO of The Felix Project launch a new campaign ‘Food from the Heart’. The campaign initiated by The Caring Family Foundation, founded by husband and wife, Richard and Patricia Caring is in partnership with The Felix Project and FareShare. ‘Food from the Heart’ will start by providing 80,000 meals to children going hungry this Christmas who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”


The Caring Family Foundation has launched a new campaign ‘Food from the Heart’, with the aim to make a difference to the lives of children in the UK living in poverty. Throughout December this new campaign will provide 80,000 meals to children that are going hungry this Christmas and will continue to feed children in need into 2021.

The campaign was born from the desire to play a role in alleviating the disastrous impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the existing growing problem of child food poverty across the UK. The ‘Food from the Heart’ campaign pledges to feed children with a food delivery program that will have a sustainable impact.

Partnering with FareShare and The Felix Project, The Caring Family Foundation’s ‘Food from the Heart’ campaign will deliver meals across the UK to children most in need of food, found through a nationwide conducted survey by FareShare. Chefs across the hospitality network, have come together to create nutritious meals for children, including Cottage Pie, Vegetarian Lasagne and Vegan Macaroni & Cheese.

Husband and wife, Richard and Patricia Caring, who founded The Caring Family Foundation will utilise the chefs from their hospitality network; The Ivy Collection and Caprice Holdings who have volunteered to produce healthy recipes for the children’s meals. “My husband and I feel incredibly passionate and proud to be launching the ‘Food from the Heart’ campaign through the Caring Family Foundation with the support of FareShare and The Felix Project. As a mother of three young children, it is so important that we are doing everything we can to help children who are going hungry and make a positive impact on some of the devastating statistics surrounding child poverty” Patricia Caring , Co-Founder, The Caring Family Foundation.
