Twice a year we release stats about the number of emergency food supplies given to people in crisis by food banks in the Trussell Trust network.
The data that we gather from the frontline work of food banks (both the numbers of people receiving emergency food parcels and the reasons for visiting a food bank) helps us campaign for change to ensure everyone can afford their own food.
End of year stats
April 2022 – March 2023
Close to 3 million emergency food parcels were distributed by food banks in the Trussell Trust network in the past 12 months — the most parcels ever distributed by the network in a year.
Mid year stats
April 2023 – September 2023
The Trussell Trust’s food bank network provided 1.5 million emergency food parcels to people in crisis between April and September 2023.
