About

In the week leading up to the 1st of April 2023, Altrad’s social value champions will be supporting The Trussell Trust by promoting their ‘Race Against Hunger’.
 
This is a virtual 5K walk or run which presents an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for the charity. The Trussel Trust supports a network of food banks and provides emergency food and support to people in need across the UK - campaigning for change to end the need for food banks.
 
If you would like to get involved, please contact your local social value champion for more information:

Why is it so important to Race Against Hunger?
Between 1 April 2022 and 30 September 2022, food banks in the Trussell Trust's UK-wide network distributed 1.3 million food parcels to people facing hardship - this is an increase of 52% compared to the same period in 2019. Half a million of these parcels were distributed to children. This isn't right. Everyone should be able to afford the essentials and put food on the table.

The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of more than 1,300 food bank centres, providing emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, as well as working to challenge the structural issues that force people to use food banks. No one should have to suffer the indignity of relying on emergency food and the Trussell Trust knows that together, we can build a future where everyone can afford the essentials.
