Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.
There are two local Foodbanks:
Trussell Trust foodbanks provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK.
Trussell Trust Foodbanks.
In 2013-14 foodbanks fed 913,138 people nationwide. Of those helped, 330,205 were children.
Rising food and fuel prices, static incomes, underemployment and changes to benefits are some of the reasons why increasing numbers are being referred to foodbanks for emergency food.
