South & East Bristol Foodbank
The South & East-Bristol Foodbank
has done an immense amount of good for the city thanks to its association with The Trussell Trust’s system of 428 UK foodbanks. Each food bank is dedicated to eradicating hunger and poverty across the country. Most of these foodbanks are held at community centres and churches where those in need can easily access the service.
The extent of the Trussell Trust’s importance was illustrated in 2020/21 when they supplied 2,537,198 emergency food packages to citizens across the UK, more than a third of which went to children.
In addition to supplying food relief, The South & East-Bristol Foodbank works to The Trussell Trust’s larger goal of improving the UK’s social framework to make fewer citizens dependent upon foodbanks. This is achieved via programmes like the ‘More Than Food’ initiative which deals with wider issues causing food shortage problems.
In December 2021, the Huboo team was proud to assist Bristol Foodbank by helping with the distribution of food hampers for the local community. This rewarding work is just one of many charitable ventures we hope to undertake in the near future to support this excellent charity.
