It was estimated that 3 million children were at risk of going hungry during the school summer holidays last year without school meals. This is a shocking statistic, but together we can make a difference.

Join the Party on or around Shrove Tuesday - 25th February 2020 - and help us tackle food poverty by hosting a Pancake Party of your own.

All funds raised by the Big Pancake Party support the work of the Church Urban Fund's Together Network which operates all over the country supporting projects tackling issues such as food poverty.

You'd batter believe we're ending hunger! Join the Big Pancake Party on the 25th of February 2020.

Did you know: 1 in 8 British adults say they are anxious about not being able to afford food. All across this country there are children going to school hungry and parents skipping meals so that their kids can eat an evening meal. Nearly a million adults use a food bank every year in Britain and 5% of British adults say that they have missed a meal as they were unable to afford food.

The Together Network (part of the Church Urban Fund) wants to end hunger and is working towards this by supporting initiatives around the country such as ‘holiday-hunger’ schemes and community fridges.

How can you help?

We need your support! We are calling on churches, schools, families, and individuals throughout England: will you join the Big Pancake Party and stand up to food poverty?

The idea is simple; get together with friends or family, eat some pancakes, have a great time and raise funds for those in need. You could hold it in your home, school, church or community venue. It could be big or small, it could be on pancake day itself or on another day that works for you.

We have plenty of ideas and resources to help you throw your Big Pancake Party - just choose the idea (or ideas!) you like, and get cooking.

Together we can make a difference!

If you can't take part in the Big Pancake Party but want to help us tackle food poverty, then you can donate using the link below.

Just £3 can provide lunch for a child over summer as free school meals disappear. £9 can provide an emergency food parcel for a family for one day. Each £25 raised can provide a slow cooker so that families can make simple and nutritious meals with the food they receive from food banks.

Together we can make a huge difference to the lives of families across the country who are struggling to feed themselves.

It’s been a godsend. I would not have had any food today if I had not come here.
