Dean Midas Films: Making Strides Against Food Poverty in the North East
Dean Midas

On Saturday, December 9th, esteemed filmmaker Dean Midas will embark on a 7.1-mile journey from Willington Cricket Club to Durham Cathedral.

His purpose? To support Feeding Families, a charity rooted in North East England, dedicated to providing essential aid, hope, and assurance to individuals facing food poverty.

35% of children in the North East are growing up in poverty. That’s nine in a classroom of 30. Feeding Families works across the North East, helping those who can’t access food banks.

They offer support, hope and security to those experiencing food poverty. Working closely with other organisations and agencies, they ensure that thousands of families in desperate need have access to our Emergency Food Boxes and support packages. Feeding Families offers more than just food, it shows compassion to those in crisis.

Rachel Lister from Feeding Families said “We are extremely grateful for Dean’s help and support, not only in this festive period, but all year around” 

Mr Midas said: “Every single penny we raise during this walk, really will change people’s lives. Thank you in advance for your support”
