Lockdown, lifelines and the long haul ahead: the impact of Covid-19 on food banks in the Trussell Trust network

This report presents findings of research carried out by the Trussell Trust and Heriot Watt University.

It estimates that 846,000 food parcels will need to be provided to people in crisis during October to December 2020 – a 61 per cent increase on last year.

It also estimates that an additional 670,000 people will be destitute by the end of the year, meaning they cannot afford essentials such as housing, energy and food.
