Food banks in the UK are facing a “pressure cooker” situation as the cost-of-living crisis forces more people than ever to turn to emergency food parcels for survival. According to figures from the Trussell Trust charity, 2,986,203 emergency food parcels were distributed by Food Banks in the Trussell Trust network between April 2022 and March 2023.
These figures represent the highest number of emergency food parcels ever distributed in a single year, with almost three million parcels given out over the last year, a 37% increase from the previous year.
In light of these alarming statistics, eCymru has recorded a series of virtual cooking classes on their on-demand section, allowing individuals registered through their social landlord to access and learn at their own pace and convenience.
