There were at least 2,500 food banks as at the end of 2022. That is both an amazing and worrying number. 1,400 were part of the Trussell Trust food bank network.* However, at least 1,100 are independent food banks like ReadiFood.
Many, including ReadiFood, are members of the Independent Food Aid Network IFAN
For anyone interested in finding out more details about demand and supply etc there was an in depth study done last year.
Please note that Food Banks operate different systems. ReadiFood delivers parcels, we do not use the voucher drop in system.
