The Country Food Trust is a charity that raises funds to provide meals to feed people in need. Any monies raised here at the World Gunmakers’ Evening will be used by the charity to provide game-based food to those most in need.

The Country Food Trust is a charity that raises funds to provide meals to feed people in need. Its meals are produced by a specialist food manufacturer. The meals are game based, high in protein, low in fat and are supplied in one of two ways:

• In single, ready to use retort pouches that do not need to be refrigerated and have a one year shelf life.• In catering packs to those charities who feed a large number of people at any one time.

The Country Food Trust recipes are devised by Consultant Chef Tim Maddams, who works tirelessly for the Charity devising recipes that are both tasty and nutritious and do not contain additives. Currently there are three products available:

• The Country Bolognese – a rich and tasty venison ragu.
• The Country Casserole – a nutritious and warming pheasant casserole
• The Country Curry – a mildly spicy pheasant curry

For a shockingly large number of people in the UK, having enough food is not an everyday reality and having a nutritious meal is a rarity. The Country Food Trust believes that everyone, regardless of his or her economic circumstances, should have access to a balanced and nutritious diet. The meals are given free to those people living in poverty.
