How to start a foodbank

The Trussell Trust is the UK’s only nationwide network of foodbanks in the country. If you are thinking of starting a foodbank in your community, they can help your organisation or church get started. The Trussell Trust provides comprehensive ongoing support – in exchange for a donation – which includes full training.

13 million people in the UK live below the poverty line, and foodbanks are becoming an increasingly important and valuable lifeline. In 2013-14 foodbanks fed 913,138 people nationwide. Of those helped, 330,205 were children.
