Christmas appeal - Email your MP

On Wednesday 18 December there will be a debate in parliament on the rocketing growth in foodbank use.

Since April 2013, The Trussell Trust foodbanks have had to feed 500,000 people - this is shameful in the world's seventh richest country.

Wednesday's debate will be an opportunity for MPs to confront this issue and challenge the government to do more to tackle food poverty.

In just one week 134,497 people signed a petition calling for this vital debate - now it's time for MPs to show they care, by turning up for just a few hours to take part.

Please use the tool below to email your MP and let them know that you are calling for them to be in the House of Commons debate on Wednesday. Feel free to amend the suggested message on the following page.
