Hacking for foodbanks is an initiative created in collaboration with the following organisations:
44CON is the UK's leading independent Information Security Conference & Training event. Based in London, 44CON provides a flagship 2.5-day event featuring cutting edge information security research.
Thirteen million people live below the poverty line in the UK, with individuals going hungry every day for a range of reasons, from benefit delays to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income.
The Trussell Trust's 400-strong network of foodbanks provides a minimum of three days' emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis in the UK. In 2017/18, we gave 1,332,952 three day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
The Hammersmith & Fulham Foodbank opened in June 2010 and has provided about 360,000 meals since that time. Listening is a key part of what we do, enabling us to signpost and, where possible, ensure that support and advice is in place to ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients. As well as emergency food parcels, we also run Holiday Clubs, cooking and budgeting courses, and more. Please visit our website for more information.
