Help us make hunger a thing of the past

In the last year, the Trussell Trust’s food bank network distributed 1.6 million three-day emergency food parcels to people in crisis, a 19% increase on the previous year.
More than half a million of these went to children.

This is unacceptable.

Going to bed hungry

Missing meals to feed the children

Not having enough income to cover the basics

Having to be referred to a food bank

Will you stand with us and help make hunger and poverty in the UK a thing of the past?

I’d like to give a gift because I think UK hunger is unacceptable

I’d like to give a regular gift to create long term change

“George has been a fisherman his whole life. To see him come to the food bank in tears, because an extended period of bad weather meant he couldn’t earn any money and had not eaten in several days, was truly heart breaking.”

Jacqui, Project Manager, Wadebridge Foodbank

This can change

1.6 million emergency food parcels is not, and never will be acceptable. No charity can replace the dignity of having enough money to buy your own food. We need to ensure that everyone has enough money coming in to cover the cost of essentials, whether from secure work that pays the real Living Wage or a benefits system that anchors people from being swept into poverty.

“The food bank made me feel like I had more choice over my next steps, it gave me my independence back”

“Just five minutes to breathe can really make all the difference, that’s why food banks are such a lifeline.”

“The food bank gave me such confidence and hope, I felt I was actually worth something.”

Your support can help fight poverty in three ways:

1. Supporting the food bank network

helping get emergency food to people in crisis

2. More than food

helping people get the support that allows them to get back on their feet

3. Campaigning for change

bringing people together to address the root causes of poverty
