It's time for Tea for Trussell!

Tea for Trussell is the perfect party to catch up with friends, family and workmates, whether you choose to host an event at home with their nearest and dearest or raise your mugs virtually with loved ones. Let’s create the most wonderful new memories together.

We all know that some of the best conversations happen over brew – which is why a cup of tea is also at the heart of our food bank network. The warm welcome of a cuppa has the power to spark conversation and offer support to people coming into the food bank, while helping to uncover and address the underlying issues of poverty. 

It’s not right that any of us need to use a food bank but we know that this can change. That’s why we’re urging everyone across the country to put the kettle on and get their loved ones involved in this exciting event.

Between 1 April 2020 and 31 March 2021, food banks in the Trussell Trust’s UK wide network distributed 2.5 million emergency food parcels to people in crisis, a 33% increase on the previous year. 980,000 of these went to children. This isn’t right. 

Together we can build a fairer, more just society, where all of us can afford the essentials.
