Coventry Foodbank in the News

Coventry foodbank continues to attract national and local press interest. Some of this is positive and some less so. The recent one hour documentary by David Modell entitled "Britains Hidden Hungry" highlighted the plight of Charlotte and a number of other foodbank clients.

Charlotte is now studying at University and she will receive support from many people who where moved by her story. If you were moved by Charlotte's story and would like to donate then please contact the Trussell Trust directly.
