Our year end figures show Bristol North West Foodbank gave out 3 days of emergency food to 3830 people last year. That is an increase of 40% on the previous year! We continue to see many people struggling with the benefit system, debt, low incomes and sickness. We have notably seen an increase in single men using our service with facing issues such as sanctions, mental health issues, drug problems, homelessness, ptsd and coming out of prison.
A huge thank you goes to our wonderful team of 70 volunteers and our faithful donors without whom we could not continue this work.
