Take part in our 40 for 40 challenge this Lent

#40for40    #adlentcalendar

2018 saw a record number of people come through the doors of our food banks. We distributed 1.4 million food parcels, half a million of these went to children. It’s important that we continue to offer support to individuals and families in crisis, and the only way we can do this is through our food bank network, and you. Our food banks provide not just essential emergency food, emotional support and practical advice they also provide hope.

40 pence for 40 days

This Lent we’re asking people to join us in transforming lives by giving up 40 pence for 40 days. With the addition of Gift Aid this comes to £20. Small actions really can go a long way.

Alternatively, if want to challenge yourself to give something up this Lent, then why not donate the cost of what you save to the Trussell Trust?

At the end of Lent, bank the money you’ve raised and donate it below, online or send a cheque (made payable to the Trussell Trust and write ‘Lent’ on the reverse) together with this Gift Aid Form to: Freepost Trussell Trust. No address needed, it’s that easy!

We’d love to hear how you’re getting involved, so why not join in the conversation on social media? Remember to use #40for40

Adlent – Reverse advent calendar for Lent

During spring, many foodbanks struggle with low food stocks, yet the need for emergency food to support people in crisis remains.

You can help food stocks last well into the summer by taking part in Adlent, a great way to help over the period of Lent. Simply download the Adlent calendar and collect or donate one item of food for each of the forty days of Lent, starting on Ash Wednesday 06 March and finishing on Thursday 18 April.

You can take part as an individual, community group, at work or at school.

Donations made to foodbanks in our network are used to provide three days of emergency food to local people, facing hunger, making a huge difference to their lives.

Please contact your local foodbank, in advance to arrange delivery of your donations. Click here to find your nearest foodbank.

Don’t forget to join in with the conversation on social media, we’d love to hear from you and see what you get up to. #Adlentcalendar
