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.

For the first time outside of the first year of the pandemic, food banks in the Trussell Trust network have distributed over 2.1 million food parcels in 2021-22.
Mid year stats
