Feeding Families is a remarkable food support charity serving the entire North East of England, working to create a strong support system that helps individuals and families get the support they need to thrive.

The charity provides food support to families who are between other support, ensuring that no one falls through the cracks and no one goes hungry. Feeding Families’ services also extend to hospital discharges, as well as people with mental health or physical disabilities who cannot access other support for food. All support is provided through a partnership system where a referee registers for boxes and distributes these to those identified as being in need.  

Back in 2021, Feeding Families purchased 120 litres of ReColour emulsion paint to decorate their then-new premises (click here to read about their past project). Fast forward to April 2023 when the Feeding Families team got in touch again, as due to growing demand, the charity had secured new, larger premises which needed decorating, prior to moving in during May 2023.

The new premises is more than double the size of their previous location, providing more space to better serve the North East community. As a result, a larger ReColour order of 450 litres of Brilliant White ReColour emulsion paint was placed for the large decorating task.

The order was processed by our remanufacture centre run by Community RePaint Wirral, and once packaged, the paint order was delivered directly to the door of Feeding Families’ new premises.

ReColour remanufactured paint is bulk produced from leftover paint that is filtered, treated and blended to produce a high-quality range of emulsion, masonry and chalk paint, available in over 20 colours. ReColour remanufactured paint is perfect for projects requiring more than 60 litres of paint and prices start from £1.20 per litre.
