Feeding Gloucestershire becomes a CIO

Feeding Gloucestershire becomes a CIO

Feeding Gloucestershire are extremely pleased to announce that we are now registered with the Charities Commission as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. This is exciting for us as we continue work towards our vision for Gloucestershire to be a county where everyone can enjoy good food and nobody goes hungry.

We would like to thank those who have given their time and support to get us to this point, and to Gloucestershire County Council for funding our work to date.

Thanks go to our former steering group members – Sue Weaver and Julie Craig (Gloucestershire County Council), Jenny Phelps (FWAG SW) Phil Coysh (formerly The Trussell Trust), Amanda Strover (Stroud District Foodbank), Nick Penny (Forest Voluntary Action Forum – FVAF), Leanne Purnell (Gloucester City Council) and Lisa Jevins (Barneys Pantry). Additional thanks go to Andrew Forsey and Rose Bray from Feeding Britain and to Bishop Rachel Treweek.

We would also like to thank the many incredible organisations who have been part of the journey so far, and we look forward to continuing to work with them.

We would like to introduce our trustees – Sarah Avery, Helen Hutchings, Emma Keating Clarke, Corrie Sissons and Steve Townsend – you can find out more about them here
