An incredible 13 million people live below the poverty line in the UK.
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. Trussell Trust foodbanks provide a minimum of three days emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK.
In 2013-14 foodbanks fed 913,138 people nationwide. Of those helped, 330,205 were children.
Rising food and fuel prices, static incomes, underemployment and changes to benefits are some of the reasons why increasing numbers are being referred to foodbanks for emergency food.
The Trussell Trust partners with churches and communities to open new foodbanks nationwide. With over 420 foodbanks currently launched, our goal is for every town to have one.
St Albans is a foodbank distribution centre open Thursdays from 2.30pm to 4.30pm
St. Albans is a distribution centre for the Stoke-on Trent Food bank supported by the Trussell Trust, a registered charity. The food bank main warehouse is at the Blurton Methodist Church Magdalen Road Blurton.
Supported and run by volunteers from the members of the parish churches of Blurton and Dresden the foodbank offers a much needed and very welcome aid to those in need.
St. Albans Community Centre offers a valuable resource within the community in which it is situated.
Working together we can and do make a difference
