FoodbanksA striking fact has been revealed in a recent research where it has been found that one in every ten people skip meals and go hungry in order to feed the stomachs of their family members. The figures say that 16% of the people in Southwest go without food.

The research had been conducted under the guidance of Tesco, the Foodbanks charity the Trussell Trust and food redistribution charity FareShare. Research uncovers the fact that 21% of parents in the UK grapple with feeding their family members.

Food poverty has been climbing. This research was done to check the extent of problem. Speaking on the matter, Chairman of the Trussell Trust, Chris Mould, said that the organization members are meeting parents who have been facing hungry stomachs. They want to contribute to this cause and are stretching their budgets to help the needy.

He said, "Our foodbanks across the UK are working tirelessly to meet the growing demand and the Tesco collection will provide vital supplies to help stop families going hungry this summer".

So, the UK's biggest food collection event will be organized by Tesco in Vale. The purpose of the event is to provide food to people living in West Midlands.
