We are the UK network for
independent food aid providers.
We support and connect a range of independent frontline food aid organisations while
advocating on their behalf at a national level.
Our vision is of a country which doesn’t need emergency food aid and
in which good food is accessible to all.
YOU CAN SUPPORT INDEPENDENT FOOD BANKS AND
OTHER INDEPENDENT FOOD AID PROVIDERS DURING
THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
VIA OUR DONATE BUTTON OR
THROUGH OUR MEMBERS' WEBSITES
If you have any questions or to find out more about independent food banks in your local area please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
