Catalyst has obtained funding for the production of food parcels for those affected by the COVID pandemic.

Specifically, we have:

  • £13,500 from the national lottery for food parcels (at £10 each) to help people affected by COVID. This needs to be spent by end of February
  • £5678 from a GoFundMe campaign aimed at providing food for emergency food banks.

The demand for funding for COVID-related food supplies seems to have reduced quite a lot since the lottery bid went in, in May. However, during the Food Power Network meeting held 11th September there was still a lot of interest shown.

If you would like to use this funding in Stockton-on-Tees, please email: detailing the following information:

  • An outline of how the money would be used
  • How much money you need
  • How many food parcels (at £10 each) this would be equivalent to

If we receive expressions of interest totalling less than £19,200, all information that has been asked for will be supported. If the total is more than that, we may have to reduce the allocations by a proportionate amount.

If you have any questions please contact Jon Carling on 01642 733906 or email

Please send in your interest by 23rd September, 5pm
