On Tuesday morning, I handed the petition in to Parliament, along with the Daily Mirror, Unite and the Trussell Trust, with over 130,000 signatures on it – including yours.
We got a debate!
The debate will go ahead in a week’s time, on the Wednesday 18th of December, so the next week is crucial.
Please take a moment to contact your local MP to tell them why you signed the petition and ask them to attend the debate to represent you as one of their constituents.
Ask them to visit a foodbank in their area, if they haven’t already. Ask them to stand up for the hungry people in their constituency, people in work, out of work, people living on their own, people with children, all struggling to put food on the table in one of the richest and most developed countries in the world.
We’ve got less than a week to make sure as many MPs as possible are at the debate. So click here to find and email your MP today.
And please continue to share the link to the petition on Facebook and Twitter: http://www.change.org/foodbanks
We have achieved more than I ever thought possible over the past 7 days, but every additional voice strengthens our campaign.
Thank you so much for your help and support,
