The Caring Family Foundation was set up in 2019 by Richard and Patricia Caring in response to a desire to feel more connected to the impact and outcome of their philanthropy. They wanted to focus on causes close to their hearts and be hands-on, remaining close to the journeys of the families and communities we work alongside. The Caring Family Foundation’s vision is a world free from hunger, harm and hurt, where women and children can thrive. Its mission is to work towards that world to ensure every child has access to a nutritious meal, every woman is free to make her own choices without violence and rainforest communities can flourish through tree-planting initiatives.
When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, through the national ‘Million and One Meals’ campaign, TCFF provided over one million meals to NHS key workers and families affected by the pandemic. Soon after, TCFF launched the ‘Food from the Heart’ campaign in partnership with The Ivy Collection to provide nutritious meals to children experiencing food poverty and food insecurity across the UK. In Brazil, TCFF now provides 1,700 meals per day, in the hardest-to-reach, marginalised and underserved communities. The Caring Family Foundation recently reached the milestone of two million meals in the UK and Brazil, whilst transforming their offer to support communities in a sustainable way, providing not only meals but also education and income opportunities.
