COVID-19 emergency food programme

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are running an emergency food programme to protect children and their families from hunger. Hot meals and food packages are being made available, through a combination of home deliveries and collection points in the community, to ensure families on low incomes can put breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the table each day. A donation of just £10 can purchase the equivalent of 30 meals for a family at risk of hunger.

There's no place for hunger in the UK

Access to good quality food for all is possible, and essential for a thriving society.

What we do

Hunger has no place in 21st century Britain. We are working with partners as diverse as food banks and local community food organisations, politicians and companies, to make sure it becomes a thing of the past.

Thanks to your generous support, the Feeding Britain network has, in partnership with likeminded organisations:

  • Implemented a longstanding Healthy Holidays programme to provide nutritious meals and enriching activities for more than 30,000 children and their families during school holidays. Legislation that followed from this programme resulted in a three-year £20 million Holiday Activities and Food programme from the Government.
  • Distributed 1.6 million meals to vulnerable people and families on low incomes since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. In the course of this emergency programme, we are on track to create up to 60 job placements for young people in search of work.
  • Established, maintained, and supported 40 community food centres, including our flagship Citizens’ Supermarkets, which provide affordable nutritious food and wraparound help for 3,000 families and individuals each week.
  • Provided specialist support, advice, and advocacy to 2,700 people on the brink of destitution and, in the process of this Pathways From Poverty programme, increased their annual incomes by a combined total of £500,000 while busting the limits that poverty places on people’s lives.
  • Operated Fuel Banks which have prevented more than 20,000 people having to decide between ‘heating or eating’.

Our president

I am proud to be the President of Feeding Britain. The work that is being done to support people at very real risk of hunger, and to find ways to tackle the root causes of hunger, is critical and the successes to date are encouraging.
