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.

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.
