A bit about The Trussel Trust:

The Trust is a charity which works with people in Poverty. Its main activity has been to grow foodbanks across the UK and it has helped over 450 communities to do so, feeding hundreds of thousands of people in crisis and in the financial year supplied over 1.6 million three day emergency food packs across the UK. Locally the Trust also has a recycling and upcycling project which supports 10 shops that provide good quality low cost goods to people who struggle to shop in the high street. The upcycling and sorting provides over 500 regular volunteering opportunities many of which are used as training schemes for clients and ex-clients and other people who have life issues which prevent them from entering the workplace.
