Press & Media

The Trussell Trust is a leading voice on UK poverty and hunger, and we’re passionate about making sure that people living on the breadline are heard.

We provide spokespeople and, where appropriate, arrange visits to our projects. We can also help coordinate interviews with people helped by foodbanks who are happy to share their story.

Our website provides lots of information on latest foodbank figures, research into foodbank use and advocacy work.
