With living and energy costs skyrocketing, people across the UK are being pushed deeper into poverty, forced into impossible decisions.

People across the UK are being pushed deeper into poverty, forced into impossible decisions.

Can you imagine being forced into impossible decisions like heating your home or feeding yourself? Or being caught between buying your child a new winter coat, or turning on the oven so you can cook them a hot meal?

Where do you cut back when you have already cut back on everything you can? 

Everyday food banks in our network are hearing from people like Heather, a single parent of two -

'I have worked my whole life. The job I just had, the gas company, had to cease operating. I'm a single parent of two. I have to choose between paying my electric bill or gas.'  

Millions of people being pushed deeper into poverty across the UK are facing decisions that are not just difficult but impossible.

The rise in living costs combined with the cut in Universal Credit are forcing more people to turn to food banks just to get by. 

Food banks in our network predict they'll have to give over 7,000 food parcels a day this December.

This simply isn't right.

We live in a society where everyone should be able to afford the basics. 

Your support can help our network of food banks reach more people with the emergency food and support they need to get through the winter.

  • £25 could help food banks give out emergency food parcels to more people in urgent need this winter 
  • £50 could help provide more financial advice to worried families - helping them get back on their feet
  • £100 could help a food bank in our network tackle the root causes of poverty in their community
