Ask your Parliamentary Candidates to sign our pledge

3.1 million emergency food parcels were distributed by food banks in the Trussell Trust network in the past 12 months – the most ever in a year. 

Our social security system should prevent people from needing to use a food bank when times get tough. Instead, it is not providing adequate protection and food banks are being stretched to breaking point. 

How can it be right that the very system which was created to support us when we face challenging times is pushing people deeper into hardship? It doesn’t have to be this way.

Take action now  

Ahead of the General Election, you can take action by asking your Parliamentary Candidates to demonstrate their commitment to advocate for changes which would help ensure our social security system protects people from needing a food bank to survive. 

In just three minutes you can email your Candidates and ask them to sign the pledge. 

Together, we can call for a future where no one needs a food bank to survive.
