State of Hunger
Our latest research
State of Hunger is a landmark three-year research project into hunger and destitution in the UK and our latest report reveals the extreme poverty faced by people who need to use food banks.
Record 2.5 million emergency food parcels given to people in crisis in the past year.
Food bank use is rising year-on-year, with need now 128% higher compared to the same time five years ago.
TOGETHER WE CAN end the need for food banks
From donating food, volunteering your time or taking on an fundraising challenge, there are lots of ways to get involved with raising awareness of poverty and helping end UK hunger.
