About the Trussell Trust
The Trussell Trust’s vision is to bring an end to the need for food banks in the UK. Their network includes more than 1,300 local food bank centres across the UK who are providing practical support for people facing hardship. But emergency food isn’t a long-term solution to hunger. People need food banks when they don’t have enough money for essentials. It’s not right that anyone needs a food bank to get by, and the Trussell Trust believe we can change this by ensuring everyone has enough income to eat, stay warm and stay dry. That’s why they also work with communities across the UK to change the things that push people to need a food bank. The Trussell Trust believe that in coming together, and working together, we will build a future where none of us need a food bank, because none of us will allow it
