About the Independent Food Aid Network
The Independent Food Aid Network is mapping the UK’s independent food banks and emergency food parcel distributors.
Find out more about the extent of UK emergency food parcel distribution outside of the Trussell Trust foodbank network here.
With at least 803 independent food banks operating across the UK, the independent sector represents nearly 40% of the food bank picture.
As part of the End Hunger UK coalition IFAN has been campaigning for UK-wide measurement of food insecurity and the news that the DWP has included food insecurity questions within the Family Resources Survey is very welcome indeed. You can read more here.
