Together We Can Stop Hunger
To celebrate our 21st birthday this year, you helped us reach our goal of raising £20,000 for The Trussell Trust by making generous donations, which we matched pound for pound. We’re happy to share with you our commitment to providing long-term support for everything The Trussell Trust does in campaigning for structural change in the UK, beyond their immediate COVID-19 relief efforts.
A New Way To Help This Christmas
This Christmas, there’s a new way to participate in our charitable partnership – by purchasing a charity gift. When you purchase a charity gift, we will donate 20% of the sale to The Trussell Trust in support of their mission to end the need for food banks in the UK. Together, we can help to put food on the table for the 14 million people locked in poverty*.
About The Trussell Trust
Right now, more than 14 million people in the UK, including 4.5 million children, are living in poverty, a number that is rising day by day as the true cost of the COVID-19 pandemic is counted. The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of over 1,200 food banks to provide emergency food and assistance to people locked in poverty, and campaigns for change to end the need for food banks in the UK. Between April 2019 and March 2020, food banks in its network provided a record 1.9 million food supplies to people in crisis.
The Trussell Trust knows it takes more than food to end hunger. It brings together the experience of food banks in its network, and their communities, to challenge the structural economic issues that lock people in poverty, and campaign for change in the UK. It is working with its network to end hunger in three ways:
- Emergency food – supporting food banks to provide emergency food to people locked in poverty
- More than food – helping food banks provide compassionate, practical support to tackle the root causes that lock people into poverty and build people’s resilience so they’re less likely to need a food bank in the future
- Creating change – bringing together evidence from hundreds of communities across the UK to challenge the structural issues that lock people into poverty and campaigning for long-term change to end hunger in the UK
