Supporting Your Local Food Bank

With the cost of living crisis, a growing number of people are turning to food banks for assistance. There is no reason anyone should be deprived of food or feel alone without support - that is why supporting Foodbanks is so important.

Did you know that, "In the UK, more than 14 million people are living in poverty – including 4.5 million children"

Trussell Trust

The Trussell Trust supports a network of food banks, providing emergency food and support for those who are poverty-stricken. With the cost of living crisis continuing to grip the nation, these services are going to be more needed. Give as you Live are offering alternative methods of support to those wishing to help their local food banks:

Raise FREE donations from your shopping:

When you become a member of Give as you Live Online and select your local food bank (or The Trussell Trust) as your supported charity, you can raise FREE donations when you shop at over 5,500 retailers!

Your Membership is free, and there are no fees for the charity either, meaning they receive 100% of the donations you earn.

Make a donation:

No matter how much you are able to spare, it really could help somebody have a meal. According to The Trussell Trust, "with £5 we can deliver an emergency food parcel to a rural family in crisis"

If you would like to make a monthly repeat donation, you can set up a Direct Debit for a set amount, to leave your bank on the day of your choice. A commitment to regular giving could really make a difference to families in your area.
