Emergency Appeal for Food Banks During COVID-19

Coronavirus or COVID-19 is having a devastating impact on our society. The disease has led to measures beyond our wildest imaginations, including orders for self-isolation, concerns over the ability of public services to cope, major impacts on local business, and emergency legislation.

While no one has been spared from the fallout, there are certain groups who especially need our support. One of them is The Trussell Trust, which runs 428 food banks across the UK to provide emergency food to those in crisis.

The Trussell Trust and other food banks are under strain, with panic-buying and stockpiling only making things worse. Food donations have dropped sharply, especially some essential items, so the Trust now needs to buy them to make sure people coming to its food banks have what they most need. No-one should have to rely on a foodbank but the number of people depending on them is likely to increase because of the hardship caused by job losses and business closures as a result of the coronavirus​.

That’s why I am appealing for donations to The Trussell Trust, to help them ensure that the most disadvantaged in our society have enough to eat..

I know these are deeply worrying times, but I also know that we have the ability to pull together to get through this crisis. Together we can make sure that no-one is left behind. 

Thank you for whatever you can give.
