Sadly, food poverty, social isolation and unemployment affect many people across the UK. As such, some people have limited funds to buy food for themselves and their loved ones.

If you and your family are going hungry and you need help getting food, you can visit a local foodbank in a crisis.

Find a foodbank

The Lambeth Larder website has useful information about where to find local help and support, including emergency support.

Brixton Advice Centre and the Lambeth Larder have also produced a directory of tips for healthy, cheap food, saving money and reducing waste.

Trussell Trust foodbanks

Trussell Trust foodbanks provide a minimum of three days’ nutritional, non-perishable food.

Foodbanks also offer a lot more than just food. Volunteers provide a listening ear to clients over a warm drink, and signpost people to other charities and agencies who can help resolve the underlying cause of the crisis.
