Thurrock Foodbank

Thurrock Foodbank
13 million people live below the poverty line in the UK. Every day people go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill whilst on a low income. Trusell Trust Foodbanks provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people in such crisis.

Over the last year Foodbanks fed over 1.1 million people, and approximaterly one third of these were children.

Rising food and fuel prices, static income, underemployment and changes to benefits are some of the reasons why increasing numbers are being referred to Foodbanks for emergency food.

Trussell Trust partners with churches and communities to open new foodbanks nationwide. With over 420 Foodbanks currently in existence, the ioal is for every twon to have one. Thurrock Foodbank in partenrhsip with Thurrock Christian Fellowship is one of those.
