What is the challenge?

CFINE's annual fundraiser - Appetite for Change - returns in 2018 for its third year!

The challenge is simple; live on £2 per day and raise funds through sponsorship during the week of 15th - 19th October. 

In the past two years, the fundraiser has raised over £8,000 and supported hundreds of vulnerable individuals, families, and communities in the north-east of Scotland. 

One of our development workers, who took part in the challenge last year says: 

"The best words to describe the experience are ‘hangry’ and ‘YMCA’ (it stands for Yesterday’s Meal Cooked Again).  However, I'm looking forward to starting again this year because my 'budget diet' for a week may save an entire family from a month of hunger."

£2 a day is a generous budget for many people living in the north-east. The struggle of accessing food is a real life issue that they need to face everyday. In order to alleviate the problems of those in need, we are asking for your help; take part in our challenge or support our fundraisers to make a difference!

“This campaign is a key fundraiser for CFINE and plays a huge part in raising awareness about food poverty. CFINE continues to see a huge increase in demand for the support and services we offer, including emergency food aid and financial support”

- Dave Simmers, CFINE CEO

In 2017-18, CFINE distributed over 12,000 emergency food parcels. The consistently high demand for food in the past few months has spiked to over 1400 emergency parcels per month.

All funds raised through Appetite for Change go directly towards CFINE's work tackling poverty and building resilience, and this year we are hoping to raise £10,000.

When does it take place?
