With many people losing their jobs or being paid less, the amount of people needing to use food banks has increased dramatically. The Trusell Trust recently reported that the number of families with children receiving parcels has almost doubled compared to the same period last year.
The Vegetarian Society is helping to tackle this problem by sending out food boxes. Each box contains the ingredients and recipes for two nutritious, filling, vegan meals, which provide people with eight servings of food. Thanks to the generosity of donors, we have sent 16,360 meals to people using food banks across the UK.
Our donations have now run out. We need to raise more money so we can send out more boxes, as demand for food banks is ever increasing.
One person said: “We were really excited to receive the box. It felt like a gift as everything had been thought of, down to little packets of salt and pepper, to cook two delicious meals.”
Help support local communities and be part of a movement of people who are looking after each other in these difficult times. Please give today.
