Thank you to everyone who has helped our Coronavirus Appeal which raised over £350,000 – allowing us to order 558,000 meals (61 tonnes of food) for distribution to people in need and NHS frontline workers in just two months.

The Trussell Trust has reported an 81% increase in food bank use and The Salvation Army said it saw a 63% average increase in households receiving food parcels and warned that the coronavirus pandemic had pushed the UK to a “poverty tipping point”.

We are now working with County Councils and Community Foundations, FareShare and Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) to distribute even more food in the coming months around the United Kingdom.
