How to?

Find a foodbank

Acccording to the trussell trust, the economic crisis and government cuts have seen a big increase in the number of people using food banks.

Extra centres have been started by volunteers across the country to meet demand of people in desperate need.

In 2012, Trussell Trust Foodbanks fed 350,000 people across the UK – 130,000 of them children.

Food is donated by schools, churches, businesses and individuals. The items are non-perishable and in-date, with many people adding an extra item from a food bank shopping list to their own family shop.

You may have seen volunteers at a supermarket collection near you, when shoppers are asked to buy an extra item or two to help local people in crisis.

At the food bank, volunteers sort the food to check it is in date and box it up ready to be handed out.

People accessing the Trussell Trust food banks are referred by care professionals like doctors, health visitors, social workers, CAB and police, who issue them with a foodbank voucher.
