Emma Revie, Chief Executive at the Trussell Trust, said:
“The Trussell Trust supports a network of more than 1,200 food bank centres across the UK. Together, we provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty and campaign for change to end the need for food banks. We firmly believe in the responsible business practices bought together in the Good Business Charter, such as paying a real Living Wage, and understand first-hand the positive lasting impact standards such as these can have on communities.
This is a standard that should not just be reserved for big businesses, but for a wide range of organisations, including charities such as us. We are therefore proud to be joining many other organisations which recognise the need for change and are committed to playing their part. Practices such as these are vital to uphold if we are to end poverty and the need for food banks going forward.”
