First foodbank in Northern Ireland opens

On Monday 19th December Newtownards Foodbank, our first foodbank in Northern Ireland opened its doors to the public just in time for Christmas. The Newtownards foodbank team were so determined to open before Christmas that they took just two months to get the project off the ground!

Thanks to the team’s epic efforts local people in Newtownards facing hunger over the festive period were able to receive emergency food. The Trussell Trust is delighted to have launched our first foodbank in Northern Ireland and we’re hoping to see lots more follow in the region.
