A recent report by the Trussell Trust (one of the largest nationwide Foodbank Providers), showed that in the last five years foodbank use in the UK has increased by 73% and in 2018-2019 they distributed 1.6 million emergency food parcels throughout the UK. Food poverty is affecting more and more families, and here at BUCFP we do not want to see anyone go hungry.
Because of this we are proud to be part of the End Hunger UK week of action which takes place 14th -18th October. As part of our commitment to tackling food poverty we will be offering a free, shared lunch here at the Centre on Friday 18th October. If you think you could benefit from this then do come along, eat some great food and meet your local community.
If you would like more information, or want to get involved, please contact Carol, the Food Project Coordinator. We look forward to seeing you!
