No one should be faced with the indignity of needing emergency food. Yet, between April 2020 and March 2021, food banks in the Trussell Trust’s network gave out more than 2.5m emergency food parcels. That’s a 33% increase compared to the previous year and the first time the number of food parcels distributed has topped 2 million.

This is not right but we know that together we can build a better future. This pandemic has shown the unexpected can hit us suddenly, with devastating consequences for people’s lives. It also demonstrated the way in which communities respond with kindness, compassion, and generosity.

Hunger in the UK isn’t about food, it’s about people not having enough money for the basics. When one person goes hungry, our whole society is weaker. We know change is possible. This is why your support is vital.

* The health and safety of you, your friends, and your family is the most important thing right now. Please comply with the latest government guidelines on your walk, including social distancing. Latest guidance can be found here: www.gov.uk/coronavirus 

 

We support a nationwide network of food banks and together we provide emergency food; support to people locked in poverty and campaign for long-term change. PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to forward funds onto individual foodbanks. All funds raised here go direct to The Trussell Trust.
