Eden Farm's Generous Support Boosts East Durham Trust's FEED Project

East Durham Trust is a vital support organisation for the communities in East Durham, addressing food insecurity through its FEED (Food Emergency East Durham) project. This initiative provides emergency food parcels to individuals and families in need, especially crucial during the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic that are still in effect today, and the ongoing cost of living crisis.


FEED: Combating Food Insecurity

The FEED project collects and distributes food donations to those struggling to afford food. It has become an essential service, especially as financial instability and rising living costs impact more people, including those who are employed but still find it difficult to make ends meet. The project not only supplies necessary food but also supports the well-being of the community by alleviating immediate pressures of food insecurity.


The Significant Impact of FEED 

From October 1, 2023, to April 30, 2024, the FEED project received 3,305 referrals for support, providing 1,130 food parcels. These efforts assisted 7,220 people, including 2,770 children under 18, highlighting the project's crucial role in supporting the community during tough times.


Eden Farm's Generosity and Support

The FEED project’s success is heavily reliant on donations from generous supporters like Eden Farm. Their contributions have been vital in meeting the increasing demand for food assistance. Recently, Eden Farm made a significant donation that has been instrumental in enabling East Durham Trust to continue its essential services, especially during a period of financial instability.


During a time when overall donations have decreased due to economic pressures, Eden Farm’s support has allowed East Durham Trust to help a large number of people in need. This latest donation has made a tangible difference, ensuring that many families and individuals in East Durham have access to necessary food supplies during unprecedented times.


Making a Difference in People’s Lives
