Volunteers and staff at Trussell Trust will continue their tremendous work across Glasgow’s many food banks this festive period. While some will be taking some well earned leave to spend quality time with their families, there will still be help if you need it.

This year, as many scrape pounds of meat off their plate, those who live in the poorer areas of Glasgow won’t have the same privilege. That’s why NationalWorld has partnered up with Trussell Trust this winter, to help meet the increased need and support food banks during one of their toughest winters to date.

The campaign looks to help food banks across the country with donations, as community centres face higher demand and dwindling resources. The compounding effect of the cost of living crisis has built a wider bracket of financially vulnerable residents.

Alongside NationalWorld’s involvement with The Trussell Trust, Glasgow World has listed all the food banks open and shut around the festive season - all sourced directly from Trussell Trust themselves.
