We need your support
This winter, food banks in our network are expecting to provide over one million emergency food parcels.
That’s more than in any other winter.
Your support could help food banks provide emergency food and vital advice at Christmas to everyone who needs it, including to the thousands of people who will need to use a food bank for the first time.
There has never been a more urgent time to call for change.
Help us be there for everyone, for as long as we are needed, and keep working towards a better future.
Please donate today to our urgent appeal.
We’re bracing ourselves for our busiest winter ever. Your gift could help provide emergency food, vital advice and support to someone visiting a food bank for the very first time this Christmas.

This winter, we’re expecting over 600,000 people at our food banks
That’s 1 parcel being distributed every 8 seconds
1 in 7 people in the UK are facing hunger because of a lack of money
could help a person in financial hardship access emergency food, hot water bottles and essential toiletries
could help provide advice and information so worried families can unlock additional income
could help us campaign to create a future where no one needs a food bank and everyone can afford the essentials
Your support makes a difference
Last winter, mum-of-four Nikki* was one of 225,000 people in the UK who turned to a food bank for the first time. This winter, we’re expecting that number to rise.
Nikki received emergency food and support that meant she could provide for her family. It was a huge weight off her shoulders.
As we brace ourselves for our busiest winter ever, your support could also help us push for long-term change.
Together, we can create a more just society where everyone can afford the essentials and no one needs to use a food bank.
*We work alongside people to share their stories and drive change. To protect Nikki's identity and allow her to confidently tell her story, in this instance we've used models
