Food Bank Report October 2023
Below is our latest report on the current climate of food banks in Shropshire October 2023. Our main recommendations are below:
We need to raise awareness in Shropshire of how incomes can be maximised. We need to create an understanding with the public, that there may be additional income they are entitled to or budget changes they could make.
The complexity of needs now presenting at food banks means there is more that needs to be done. However, it is an opportunity for partners across the system to work more closely together.
Continued Support for Food Banks
The biggest challenge facing food banks is the drop in donations and the rise in demand. We recommend this situation is closely monitored by those across the system and organisations consider what support they can offer to their local food bank.
