About Us

Trussell Trust's aim is to end hunger and poverty in the UK.

We support a nationwide network of food banks and together we provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.

Last year food banks in the Trussell Trust network provided more than 1.6m emergency food parcels to people in crisis. This is not right. Everyone should have enough money to cover the cost of essentials. We aim to end the need for food banks in the UK.
