Random Acts of Kindness Day Five: Donate to a Food Bank

Faye Savory

Day five of the BearHugs Random Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar is about donating to a food bank.

When doing my research for today's act of kindness I was shocked to read that thirteen million people live below the poverty line in the UK. Millions of people go hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.

The Trussell Trust is a charity that runs one of the largest food bank networks in the UK, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis. The Trussell Trust also recognises that hunger is about More Than Food, which is why they’re also working with food banks to provide a range of new services like money advice and Fuel Banks, helping people to break the cycle of poverty.

If you can't find a Trussell Trust food bank near you, there may be other food banks in you area. There may be one at a local church or at another community centre. Each will operate their own system. Contact your local council to find out more.

BearHugs is based in Sheffield. Here's a handy lists of food banks across the city.
