Trussell Trust Foodbank Usage Statistics

Twice a year, the Trussell Trust releases stats about the number of emergency food supplies given to people in crisis by their foodbanks.

This includes the number of three-day emergency food supplies given by Trussell Trust foodbanks, for adults and for children and including a regional breakdown, and the primary reasons for referral to foodbanks, 

  • End of Year statistics, covering 12 months from the beginning of April to the end of March
  • Mid Year statistics, covering six months from April to September

The Trussell Trust statistics are a measure of volume – they show the number of people to whom Trussell Trust foodbanks have given three days’ emergency food. These are not necessarily unique users.

For example, if a family of three was referred to a foodbank twice in one year, this would count as six people on the system, because someone received three days’ emergency food six times. However, if a family of three were only referred to a foodbank once, this would count as three. On average, people need two foodbank vouchers in a year.
