Last year, food banks gave out a record 1.6 million food bank parcels to people in crisis. That's enough to feed the populations of Edinburgh, Cardiff, and Sheffield combined. This is a 19% increase on the previous year, and more than half a million of these parcels went to children.
December 2018 was the busiest month for food banks last year. 186,185 three-day emergency food parcels were provided by food banks in the Trussell Trust's network to people in crisis; 78,536 of these went to children. This is 44% higher than the monthly average for the 2018-19 financial year.
How do food banks work?
Families and individuals are referred to a food bank if they are identified as being in need of extra support.
Once referred, the person gets a voucher which can be redeemed for an emergency parcel with a minimum of three days worth of food.
The Trussell Trust is an anti-poverty charity that supports a network of more than 1,200 food bank centres across the UK.
