We believe that children should be able to learn and play without fear of hunger. In 2019/20, 26% of children in the UK are considered to be living in absolute low income, with 38% of children in London living below the poverty line.
More than 14 million people in the UK are living below the poverty line and 41% of Londoners can be classed as having a low annual household income. The result of this is 33% of children aged four and under are in poverty, and 26% of children in the UK are living in absolute low income; with a steady increase since 2013 of those considered to be under relative low income and materially deprived.
This is why True Care Foundation are working to deliver food packages to low income families who struggle to provide their children with meals during the half term when they are able to receive the aid they rely on from schools.
We understand that one of the greatest burdens on an already stretched budget is providing regular meals. Our Projects are all designed to alleviate this burden; by donating to us you will be directly helping us provide meals during non-term times.
There are 190 non-term time days in a year. During this period low income families who depend on the vital support of school meals to feed their children struggle to provide regular meals for their households.
We want encourage healthy eating and kids to actively participate in food preparation. We figure that if they are aware of what goes into making their meal they will be more excited in finishing as they can feel proud knowing that they helped.
We learn from our #190DaysChallenge that children spend 190 days out of school that’s 25 weeks! So this program helps us work closely with schools and nurseries helping sponsor their efforts and well as put on fun days in the communities ourselves
The older you are, the less likely you are to be in poverty. 33% of children aged four and under are in poverty, compared to 23% of those aged between 40 and 44 and 10% of those aged 75 and over.
Help our work bringing vital relief to parents unable to provide regular meals whilst the children are out of school; which not only alleviates the related stresses that may cause but also helps bridge the household deficit.
Support from our corporate partners is very vital. Without it, many more families in terrible circumstances would go without the support they so desperately need. We work hard to form lasting partnerships with companies, providing clear business benefits for them and, most importantly, crucial funds, food and activities for the families you will be helping us support.
