Fund Launched to Support UK Foodbanks

The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust has established the Foodbank Fund in response to the increased pressures on foodbanks during the current cost of living crisis. Grants are available from £500 to 20% of the recipient organisation’s annual expenditure to cover costs including food purchases, rent, and energy bills.

To be eligible, organisations must meet the essential criteria:

  • Non-profit organisation established before 2020
  • Runs a foodbank that has been running for six months or more which regularly gives out emergency food parcels at least once each week
  • Annual income between £25,000 – £1,000,000, as detailed in your most recent set of accounts

The fund is open to applications until 6th December 2022.
