Support The Trussell Trust foodbank network 🥣

With many families across the UK experiencing a sudden reduction in, or complete loss of income, many are being forced to turn to foodbanks. Thankfully, The Trussell Trust and its network of foodbanks and volunteers, are working hard to support families with food, as well as essential psychological support.

You can now donate directly to The Trussell Trust through Revolut Donations, with your spare change, recurring or one-off donation.

About The Trussell Trust 🍞

In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children. The Trussell Trust supports more than 1,200 food bank centres in the UK to provide a minimum of three days’ nutritionally-balanced emergency food to people who have been referred to in crisis, as well as support to help people resolve the crises they face. Between April 2018 and March 2019, food banks in our network provided a record 1.6 million food supplies to people in crisis, a 19% increase on the previous year.

How foodbanks work 🥟

Foodbanks are designed to provide short-term, emergency support with food during a crisis. Their aim is to relieve the immediate pressure of the crisis by providing food, while also providing additional support to help people resolve the issues that they face.

Organisations such as The Trussell Trust, work with frontline professionals to identify people in need and issue them with a foodbank voucher. These include local agencies such as children’s centres, housing associations, advice charities and mental health teams, who are best placed to assess need.

Once a person is referred, they can bring the voucher to their nearest foodbank centre, where it can be exchanged for a parcel containing a minimum of three days’ nutritionally balanced food.

With your support, the Trussell Trust can continue its work by providing meals as well as psychological support to those in need.
