‘Because everyone deserves to eat well’ is more than just a strap line. We truly believe no-one should experience hunger, or the uncertainty of providing a nutritious meal for their loved ones.
Catch 77 is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company set up to deliver this mission. Our initial focus is on helping as many families as we possibly can during the Covid-19 pandemic. With schools closed and so many families struggling to bring in a steady income, we are working with our network of partners and supporters to deliver a weekly box of tasty goodies with a smile.
We are based in Mid Devon, but we are working in partnership to extend our Family Food Box service to as many families in need as possible.
Beyond the immediate coronavirus crisis our goal is to build a sustainable community food business helping people that typically have less access to affordable and nutritious food. “Food deserts” in the US jargon!
While we’re not convinced by this as a descriptive term, we do see a range of barriers to people eating well in the UK. Some of these are economic or social, some geographical. We are particularly focused on overcoming these barriers in more rural communities. Communities close to home.
