Welcome to Feeding the Family

Let me tell you more about GIVE GUIDE GROW 

By showing love to the lonely and vulnerable in a tangible and practical way, that invites them into a relationship with members of the community that will continue to show them support and friendship and open them up to opportunities where they can pass it on to others.

Let me introduce myself and Feeding the family, I’m Keeley Scarborough, I live in Basildon with my Husband and two teenage children, and 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).

In 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.

"My heart is for the community, especially reaching out to those who may be vulnerable or facing challenges in life. When a card advertising Feeding the Family dropped through my door during lockdown, I had to know more. Once I met with Keeley it kindled a flame and I just had to be involved. It is a privilege to be part of this team, reaching out in love to our community."
