Scaling up foodbank deliveries

Number of three-day emergency food supplies given by Trussell Trust foodbanks

What I did

I’ve spent the year scaling up the initial approach from delivering to an individual foodbank to supplying 32 different locations across the UK. I’ve also spent time visiting foodbanks and finding out how they operate.

What I learnt

I’ve got the cost to feed one person the required calories for a day down to around £2.50.

What foodbanks can do

Most foodbanks do a good job explaining how to deliver food to them — outlining the location, any instructions (like, use the side door) and opening hours.
