1 in 10 parents are very likely to need help from food banks

Devonlive has recently posted an article with the results of a survey by The Trussell Trust; almost one in 10 parents say they are “very likely” to need to use a food bank in the next three months,  9% of parents have said they expect to visit a food bank to cope with the soaring cost of living, with 88% saying their monthly food shop has increased in price over the past three months.

This is a result of the rapid rise in household bills in recent months.

The Trussell Trust have announced a new partnership with Deliveroo  two million meals and support for those in need. Deliveroo will enable customers to add a round-up donation to their in-app food orders, with all proceeds going to the Trussell Trust’s food banks. Money raised will go towards creating three-day food parcels for families in need.
