Food Banks

According to the nations largest food bank, the Trussel Trust, the number of people receiving emergency food aid has doubled in the past year.  They predict that rising food and fuel costs coupled with high unemployment and changes to benefits will lead to an increasing demand for their services.

If you or anybody you know requires an emergency food box, contact the Trussel Trust on 01722 580 180 for details about your local food bank. Each food box contains a minimum of three days supply of nutritionally balanced, non perishable food and some rural food banks can arrange delivery for those who cannot afford the cost of travel to their nearest supplier.
