Emergency Food

Emergency Food

Trussell Trust foodbanks provide a minimum of three days’ emergency food and support to people in crisis.
Foodbanks work with frontline professionals to identify people in need and issue them with a foodbank voucher. These include local organisations such as children’s centres, housing associations, welfare agencies and community mental health teams who are best placed to assess need.
Once referred, clients can bring the voucher to their nearest foodbank centre where it can be exchanged for a parcel containing a minimum of three days’ nutritionally balanced food. Some foodbanks run a delivery service, which takes emergency food boxes to clients living in rural areas who cannot afford to get to a foodbank.
Trussell Trust foodbanks are designed to provide short-term, emergency support with food during a crisis. Their aim is to relieve the immediate pressure of the crisis by providing food, whilst also offering solutions to help identify and resolve the underlying causes of the crisis.
