Harvest charity partnership offering free meals to families

Harvest Fine Foods has partnered up with City Catering and Bidfood to fund and produce Cook at Home Boxes for 1,200 families from across the Southampton City Council Schools throughout the Christmas holidays.

This move means that the families will get three fresh, good quality and nutritious meals funded by the companies through the scheme that  originally started through Covid.

Steve Whitwam, managing director of Harvest Fine Foods said: “So many of us take for granted coming home from school or work and having a hot, nutritious meal but for many children having a hot meal at school is their only opportunity. When the holidays arrive, it can be a struggle for some families to make sure their children are getting a healthy balanced meal.”

“When we found out that council funding wasn’t available this year for City Catering’s Cook at Home Boxes we felt compelled to try and do something to support our community. It makes such a huge difference and that’s why Harvest Fine Foods partnered with City Catering and Bidfood to bring this project to life and fund it ourselves while also supplying the labour and logistics to pack and distribute the Cook at Home Boxes to 1200 families across Southampton,” he added.
