Despite being one of the wealthiest countries in the world, around 1 in 5 people in the UK are suffering from food poverty. Many of these families are supported by at least once income, yet they still struggle to put food on the table. People of colour, disabled people, and the elderly are the worst-affected.
In 2020, food poverty has hit new heights, after the coronavirus pandemic caused thousands of people to lose their income. Families who were already struggling are even more vulnerable. Meanwhile, people who were living comfortably are now relying on food banks to eat. It is striking that, for the first time in its 70-year history, UNICEF is providing aid to hungry children in the UK.
Earlier this year, we partnered up with FareShare, the UK's longest-running food redistribution charity. With your support, we've been delivering basic foods like rice, tinned food and cereals, providing 4,000 meals every day to the vulnerable across the UK. Alhamdulillah, we have provided almost one million meals so far.
Help us continue to feed our neighbours and reach even more struggling people with vital food. Ensure that the most vulnerable stay nourished and healthy this winter and beyond. Donate to Mighty Meals today to make a difference right here in the UK.
