We’re going to end the need for food banks in the UK.

That’s why we work with food banks in our network, their communities and other organisations to challenge the structural issues that lock people in poverty and to campaign for change.

We believe that things can change. We’re committed to doing the hard work to create a more just society where everyone has enough money for the essentials we all need to stay fed, warm and dry. Make your voice heard and join us. Together, we can create a future where no one needs a food bank.

The true cost of living

Despite living in one of the wealthiest countries in the world, people here in the UK are going without the essentials we all need to get by. This is wrong.

Food bank managers see the stark experiences and dark realities behind the 2.1 million food parcels provided during 2021/22. Each of these parcels represent a person or family struggling to afford life’s essentials. They explain how parents are skipping meals so they can feed their children; or turning off essential appliances so they can cover the cost of the bus for a job interview.

This is the true cost of the rising price of essentials for people on the lowest incomes.

Join our campaign and add your voice to the calls of food bank staff and volunteers saying this simply isn’t right.
