Feeding the Family - Food Van

About me
I’m Keeley Scarborough, after I got furloughed, I had a deep desire to show love to people who may be feeling alone, forgotten and unloved while we were in lock down, and heard God say "feed my sheep" (John 21: 17).

My Response
I started making meals for the lonely & vulnerable and making cooking videos as I had always enjoyed helping teach people to cook and Feeding the family was born.

In this video i share more about feeding the family - https://youtu.be/gSh0n4PmuH8

6 months on
After being made redundant, i have no doubt that Feeding the Family is where i’m to focus my energy and will continue to support the people of Basildon with help from some amazing volunteers and a model that is quite unique. i sell home cooked healthy and nutritious meals  called Grow bags and each one covers the cost of a meal i Give away.

Next is a food van
It will allow us to carry more meals, keep them hot allowing us to travel further and for longer.

I have done some research around what we need and a Jiffy can looks perfect, providing both refrigeration and food warming in line with Food standards agency requirements. They range in price from £3.5k for 2008 and £13k for 2016. I'm after something in between for around to get started with and will also need to cover cost of  insurance £1400 , TAX and  MOT.

With this second Lockdown there has been an increased interest from local schools, churches and charities to refer people to us and as momentum builds i want to be ready to meet the needs of my community. 


Thank you for taking the time to read this your generosity is truly appreciated, being made redundant means i can only do this with your help which would be amazing and we can all do our bit to make our time on earth that little bit better for others. There is so much joy in giving to others. Try it!
