This represents foodbanks giving out 6 food parcels a minute. Read the latest research from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh and the Trussell Trust.
Here are some example social media posts for you to share, to get you started:
- #Foodbanks in @TrussellTrust’s network are forecast to give out a shocking six emergency food parcels a minute this winter – this isn’t right. Like and share to help me spread the word!
- Did you know that families now make up nearly two in five households needing support from @TrussellTrust #foodbanks. It’s unacceptable that anyone should need to use a #foodbank – do you agree?
- No one should need to use a #foodbank but @TrussellTrust forecasts show more people than ever will need emergency food this winter. This isn’t right – share if you agree!
- More than 50% of people who used a #foodbank in the @TrussellTrust network at the start of the pandemic had never needed one before. We need the government to act now to make sure no one is left behind.
- I’m supporting @TrussellTrust’s calls for the government to make a real difference to the lives of people in crisis this winter.
Thank you again. Together, we know #ThisCanChange.
