No one should need a food bank's help

Dear Friend,

As you may be aware, the Trussell Trust’s food bank network distributed 1.6 million three-day emergency food parcels to people in crisis last year, a 19% increase on the previous year. More than half a million of these went to children. This is unacceptable.
The Trussell Trust was built by the hands of people like you, who feel, as we do, that the current situation is unacceptable. Everyone should have enough money to pay for essentials.
Do you agree?
Jacqui told us about a recent visitor to her food bank in Cornwall:
“George has been a fisherman his whole life. To see him come to the food bank in tears, because an extended period of bad weather meant he couldn’t earn any money and had not eaten in several days, was truly heart breaking.

"We were able to help George with an emergency food parcel, and offer support and advice. The following week he came back to see us and seemed like a completely different man; he was pleased to tell us that his skipper had called and they would be heading out to sea later that week.”
Thank you for donating regularly to help us fight UK hunger. We don’t want to have to write emails like this. People should not have to turn to charities, or rely on the kindness of people like you to ensure they’re not pulled into poverty, but we can only make a difference if we tackle the root causes together.
I’d like to donate to this appeal because hunger is unacceptable
With your continued support, we can ensure that hunger and poverty in the UK become a thing of the past. Together, we can build a future where nobody ever needs to visit a food bank.

Thank you for standing with us,
Danni Malone
Head of Operations at the Trussell Trust
