We believe every family should be able to enjoy mealtimes together, taking time for the little moments that matter. For some families, this isn't always possible. That's why McCain have committed to donating £1m to Family Fund by 2023 to help them reach their goal of providing 150,000 grants & services to UK families with disabled and seriously ill children.*
Family Fund is the UK's largest charity providing grants for families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. Last year they provided 92,585 grants or services to families across the UK.
In these difficult times, Family Fund is committed to helping families in hardship or crisis with essential support, to ease the everyday pressures and give families the chance to simply be families. But with hundreds of thousands of families in need of help, there is still so much to do.
*Texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message and you'll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS.

Any amount up to £20 can be donated by replacing '5' with your preferred number, for example to donate £3 text "MCCAINFAMILY 3"
For the last two years, McCain has been a fly on the wall of family life through the McCain Nation's Conversations research series, surveying families across the UK to get to know what happens in kitchens, living rooms and anywhere else we eat together.
This year, hand in hand with Family Fund, the series continues but with a special focus on how family life is experienced by families raising disabled or seriously ill children, surveying those who have been directly helped by Family Fund alongside families without disabled children across the UK.
You may have noticed something different about our Home Chips pack. That's because this pack has been designed by Charlie.
Charlie, who is 10, lives with his mum and dad in Bradford, and the family have received essential grants from Family Fund over the years to help support Charlie following his diagnosis with autism.
