Support Your Local Foodbank and Help Families in Crisis
We are asking for YOUR help on 21st June to tackle hunger and support your local foodbanks to help make a difference to people living and going hungry in your community. Please prepare a food parcel to donate to your local foodbank by donating those items they desperately need.
We are collecting non perishable food items and toiletries between now and the 27th June which will be donated to our local foodbank in Scunthorpe on the 27th June 2018.
If you have some items you would like to donate, please do get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org or 01724 629941
The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 428 foodbanks, giving services like money advice, holiday clubs and cookery courses, helping support people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line.
In the last year they gave 1,332,952 three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis, 484,026 went to children. A 13% increase on the previous year. 12,955 tonnes of food were donated to Trussell Trust Foodbanks in 2017/2018. New national data highlights the growing proportion of foodbank referrals due to benefit levels not covering the costs of essentials, such as housing and food.
Individuals are going hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.
The Trussell Trust recognise that stopping hunger is about More Than Food, which is why they work with foodbanks to provide a range of services like money advice and Fuel Banks, helping people to break the cycle of poverty.
