The Trussell Trust runs the largest network of food banks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis. Fourteen million people live below the poverty line and in the last year 1,9 million three-day emergency food supplies were distributed to people in crisis.
2019 was our busiest year since we opened in April 2014; we provided emergency food for almost two thousand people, a third of whom were children. This is a 44% rise on 2018. The community was as supportive and generous as ever, donating over 25 tonnes of food and toiletries – thank you for all your help. We really couldn’t do this without you.
