Banks with food

I have noticed in the retail sector, I have seen there has been an increase in the use of food banks to donate food waste. This is usually in the UK open to registered charities who want to collect the food to feed the homeless and those who are on a low income.

This has led me to ask if black organisations have used food banks, I have through my work seen one black organisation, which is a food bank mainly a church but I have yet to see this on a wide-ranging scale. Black people are suffering as much if not more than other races, due to systematic racism (being denied access to jobs and housing) and are most likely to be on the breadline compared to other races.

I notice that there are a lot of churches and community groups signing up to have food banks and all is required is a charity number in the UK, though I am not sure what you need in the US for example. I know black people are proud people but going to a food bank makes no difference if you are poor or struggling for a month.

I have left a list below of food bank directories for the UK and the US if you were interested in working with one or wanting to set one up within an organisation you might work with or a religious group you are part off.
