This month is all about giving and with families struggling to afford to feed their own this year, a situation that has been exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic, we at Food Troops felt strongly that we wanted to help those in need of some nutritious food for the festive season.
We aim to provide food boxes to the people of West Cornwall that are struggling to feed their families, we hope to lighten to load a little by providing boxes of Fresh Cornish veg, ingredients, recipes and other fun activities for children to the local community.
We are currently providing cookery classes and subscription boxes for children and families online at foodtroops.org/vegucationclub as we know the importance of a whole food balanced diet and home-cooked meals and the effects these can have on our health and well-being overall. Many this year have taken on a lot of challenges that may have meant our Healthy diet plans have taken a bit of a backseat! (I know mine has!) However by providing some fresh veg along with some festive recipes or food fun ideas for the whole family we hope to change Any negative ideas around healthy food such as vegetables by educating children on the importance of healthy food as well as food waste as well as giving them culinary confidence for the future!
If you would like to support our community food programme-with-a-difference then please feel free to donate to our crowdfunder! We hope that as many people as we can donate to this that we can have a great impact on our community starting in poverty stricken areas such as Redruth Cornwall and branching out reaching out to as many families as our budget will allow us.
As a thank you for donating £3 or more you will be entered into a raffle to win some Cornish goodies as well as the Food Troops box ‘vegucation club’
You can also choose to purchase a Vegucation Club box by choosing the option on the side: £25 will get you a free vegucation club box for your child containing ingredients, products, gifts, food-related activities and more. These will be sent out to you in mid January along with our official launch.
