Butchery, ‘Canvin & Catchpole’ Launches Christmas Hampers to Support the Felix Project (Tackling Child Hunger)

Bedfordshire butchery, Canvin & Catchpole has partnered up with local brands to launch their Holiday Hunger Christmas Hampers to support the Felix Project. Each order will provide up to 12 hot meals for children facing hunger this Christmas.

The company has joined forces with a number of local food brands to launch their first ever ‘Holiday Hunger Christmas Hampers,’ which includes their award-winning Aberdeen Angus Dry Aged Wing Rib along with their booze-infused Smoked Salmon, Vintage Cheddar Cheese, and more.

This year more than ever, it’s the ideal gift to share with loved ones, and in doing so support local business rather than large online multinationals, along with supporting an important cause led by the Felix project – child hunger.

The local butchery is committed to donating up to 12 meals per hamper sold via the Felix Project and charity chefs in Schools. They will use C&C beef to make special Christmas Burgers for school kids in Enfield, London, and their aim is to feed in excess of 1500 children this holiday season.

Their Christmas hampers will be delivered between the 22nd and 23rd of December and must be pre-ordered by the 30th November to give them time to dry age the cuts of beef for the perfect meal this Christmas.

Three types of hampers are available:

Co-owner, Luke Canvin comments: ‘the focus is on making the world a better place whether it is supplying our customers with the very best locally sourced produce or giving back to the land that provides us with our food.’

He adds: ’This year we are committed to planting  4000 + trees and that’s just the start.’

Canvin & Catchpole are a 5th generation family-run butchery from Bedfordshire, with a deep seeded motto of producing meat sustainably, and reinvesting proceeds in trees and preserving biodiversity and animal welfare.

They recently launched their website, where they sell a selection of grass-fed beef fillets, rib joints and other high quality products from their estate.

The butchery has received praises from UK celebrities such as Love Island’s Chris Hugues: ‘this is special – thank you guys and thanks for everything you do to help people who will be hungry this Christmas.’

And ITV racing sport broadcaster, Oli Bel: ‘An amazing initiative from my mate Luke who has put together these C&C Christmas hampers. Not an ad, just proud of a mate using his platform (and produce) to do something good this Christmas.’

They also received support from Michelin-starred chef, Tom Kerridge.
