Feeding & Nurturing

those most in need

God gives .. Food to the Hungry

Who/What is Jedidiah?

Jedidiah was set up to feed hungry families close to home. 

Jedidiah's mission is simple:

  • That no one should go hungry.

  • Reminding people of the value God places on them. 

  • Doing what we can with what we have.

  • Honouring everyone regardless of their background.

And the Lord loved the child; and He sent word ...and he named him Jedidiah (beloved of the Lord) for the sake of God.

 2 Samuel 12:24-25

At the start of the year God placed in our heart the need to feed people around so we started as a feeding program at the local YMCA hostel in February 2020 and learned a lot doing that.

 

At the start of Covid-19 lockdown, it was clear that there was hunger behind some of the front doors around us.

 

The local schools provided the numbers of families they knew of who needed some help. Working with neighbours we provided food parcels to these 100 families, initially as a one-off.

 

We did it again, and again, and again. It became a regular thing, delivering thousands of meals and hopefully, making families feel less desperate.

 

God keeps providing. 

Founder: C.S

Trustees: C Johnson, L Hine, D Hayward. 

Key people who make this happen include R Ogier, A & D Davies, P Winterton and a wonderful team of 12 volunteers.

 
 

What do we do

Food Parcels- Bags of Hope est 14/5/20

We continue to create food parcels for families who are struggling. There is few things more agonising for a parent than being unable to provide food for their child. No parent should experience this. At Jedidiah, we are all parents to everyone's child. 

Each pack provides 25 meals

It is hard to study or get through each day when you are hungry.  The most important job a parent has is to love their children and provide stability. When we extend our help, we are trying to ease the burden of feeding for a bit leaving parents free to extend the emotional stability the children need.
