Together we can end hunger

No charity can replace the dignity of buying your own food. As a nation, we believe that everyone should be able to afford the basics: a home, electricity, food, a door they can close. But every day, too many people are waking up without these things – it simply isn’t right.
Last year, food banks in the Trussell Trust network distributed 1.6 million food parcels, with over half a million of these going to children. In the last five years, the number of emergency food parcels provided to people in crisis by food banks in our network has increased by 73%, and the numbers just keep rising.
Hunger in the UK isn’t about food. It’s about not having enough money for the basics. If people don’t have enough money coming in to cover the costs of essentials, how can they break free from hunger?
We want to see a future where food banks aren’t needed and we know that together, this can change. Find out more on our website today.
