Your church is invited to help support vulnerable people experiencing food poverty in the UK

''When congregations come together in the spirit of giving, we can fundamentally ensure that no one goes hungry in our communities.''

In the aftermath of the pandemic, there has been a major increase in the amount of people unable to feed their families. 

The shocking statistics are that nearly six million adults and 1.7 million children were struggling to get enough food in 2021 with a 95% increase in food parcels given to households with kids. 

Every month FareShare, The Felix Project and a network of independent emergency food providers distribute tens of thousands of meals to vulnerable families and children across the country.

Food Share Sunday has been created to harness the power of collective giving across church communities with the unified aim of tackling the rising issue of food poverty in the UK. Churches devoting just one Sunday in a year to Food Share Sunday will have the opportunity to engage and inspire their congregation to help those living in food poverty.
