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:

  • Continued our Healthy Holidays programme which provides nutritious meals and enriching activities for more than 40,000 children and their families during school holidays, and which led to the Government introducing a national Holiday Activities and Food programme with more than £270 million of funding.
  • Distributed 2 million meals to vulnerable people and families on low incomes since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Established, maintained, and supported 40 community food hubs, including our flagship Citizens’ Supermarkets, which provide affordable nutritious food and wraparound help on a regular basis for 4,000 families and individuals.
  • Created an employability programme for 45 young people in search of work.
  • Provided specialist support, advice, and advocacy to 3,000 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 6 Fuel Banks which have supported more than 20,000 unable to afford food, gas, or electricity.

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.
