Massive rise in church led foodbank demand

There's been an almost 200% rise in people turning to church led foodbanks in the last year.

Christian charity Trussell Trust which runs foodbanks across the UK, says it's seen the biggest rise in the number of people given emergency food.

The charity also claims the numbers have tripled since 2011/12.

Trussell Trust foodbank provides a minimum of three days emergency food.

Chris Mould from the charity. He told Premier's Tulika Pandey they need more donations from the public:

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
