Final tally of Full Time Meals Christmas push reaches over 814,000 meals

20 January 2022

We're thrilled to announce the final tally for our Christmas appeal with Full Time Meals, the Marcus Rashford and Tom Kerridge recipe project. The appeal has generated over £200,000, enough to provide more than 814,000 meals' worth of food to vulnerable people.

The Christmas appeal, which ran from December 16 into early January, allowed supporters to donate either online or via text to help provide food to frontline charities serving people in need across the UK. The appeal also inspired many supporters to become regular donors. The longer-term value of these regular contributions is expected to take the impact of this appeal to over 900,000 meals.

The support we will be able to offer thanks to this funding will make a huge impact on vulnerable families and children in the coming months. This would not have been possible without the efforts of Tom Kerridge, Marcus Rashford, the Full Time Meals team, and the generosity of everyone who donated.

Support is needed year-round, you can still give to help us get good food to those who need it most by donating to FareShare here.
