For too many people, Christmas isn’t always a time for celebration.
Every year, food banks in our network see a spike in demand in the run up to Christmas as they do all they can to make sure people aren’t left hungry over the festive season. Many food banks distribute gifts to make sure children have presents under the tree, and others provide special Christmas food boxes with festive food or fresh turkeys.
Without generous donations from the general public, this simply wouldn’t be possible. Your support can make a real difference to people in crisis over Christmas, making sure that food banks are able to meet increased demand and help those who need it most.
Ultimately, we want to end the need for food banks in the UK, no matter the time of year. No charity can replace the dignity of having enough money to afford essentials, and no one in the UK should be forced to use a food bank.
Together, we can create real change. By donating to our work, you’ll help us campaign to end the need for food banks, as well as making sure that we can support food banks in our network at Christmas and during the rest of the year.
You can also donate to your local food bank so that they can support your local community. Check what items they need most and help end the need for food banks in the UK now.
